To enable researchers to generate preliminary data for research grant proposals, IMCI is awarding Data Access Grants (DAGs). These grants do not cover personnel; rather, they cover costs (generally <$4000) to generate needed data. Examples of services and items we will consider include DNA sequencing, ddPCR, cryo-EM, mass spectrometry, reagents for an experiment, data purchase, a pilot survey, or software. We will consider other requests in the range of a few thousand dollars with strong justification related to a specific modeling-based grant proposal. Any area of research that involves modeling will be considered. DAG deadlines will occur 4 times per year.  The next deadline is January 18th, 2022. Visit our Funding Opportunities page for information on how to apply.
