NCMI Project Proposal

Investigators interested in establishing a collaboration to use cryo-EM for their structure determination can submit a project application form below. We will assess the appropriateness of your proposed project as either a driving biomedical project or a user project. A driving biomedical project will involve significant effort of our staff in planning, engaging and conducting the research while a user project will utilize our established protocol to perform the research.


If you have questions, please contact prior to submitting your proposal.
