Submit a proposal

2. Explore Foundry capabilities and plan your proposal

Start by determining which Facilities are required for your project. You can learn about our research Facilities on the Facility pages and read about their staff expertise and available equipment. You must identify a single “lead” Facility, where you will do the majority of your work. You may also identify “support” Facilities if you need additional instruments or expertise that are not found in the lead Facility.

You are encouraged to contact Foundry scientists and technical staff to discuss the feasibility and scope of your proposed project. Staff members can help you understand the Foundry’s capabilities and provide guidance in putting together your proposal.
