The “Single Cell Resources” Initiative aims at fostering research at Institut Pasteur with a focus on “single cell” approaches. We announce two distinct calls for pilot awards as seed for larger research projects:
The goal of this program is to support researchers to generate pilot data to submit future grant applications, to support the completion of a specific project, and to promote the utilization of the droplet-based MicDrop/Odin technology for image-based single cell selection.
Call 1: Innovative approaches in single cell studies. We will support projects that include innovative methods (or the development of them) to study “single cell” biology. This includes probes, workflows as well as analytical approaches. The projects should be achieved within 12 months, and the allocated resources can be spent in a flexible way and should be used in 2022. Each project proposal should be in the range of 15k€ to 30k€.
Call 2: Image-based single cell selection. We will support projects that apply MicDrop/ODIN technologies available at the CB UTechS in preparation of single cells for downstream analyses. Awardees will be granted with up to 10k€ that can be used in a flexible way. The projects should be achieved within 12 months and will be supported by staff of the CB UTechS.
How to apply:
Please submit a document (Font Arial, size 11) containing a title, a half-page summary (max), and half-page budget justification (max) of your project/planned experiments to CB_UTechS@pasteur.fr. The whole application should fit one A4 page.
