I am posting this on VIPEr as Adam so wisely suggested. Any comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Our departments GC-MS is about 20 years old and has died. I have been contemplating formulating a grant to get money for a new one. It doesn’t seem to me that it would fit into the MRI category at NSF but maybe I am wrong with that. We have intentions to incorporate the use of the machine into our teaching laboratories and in our research.
I have never written a grant for instrumentation before and I am sure that some of you have. Any guidance you could give would be greatly appreciated. (where might be a good place to ask for funding, have you ever submitted a instrumentation grant before, what maybe programs would be looking for in funding instrumentation, would it be likely for them to fund a GC-MS)
Thanks in advance for your help.
