The Foundry is a national user facility that enables researchers from outside institutions to gain free access to our expertise, instrumentation, and capabilities in nanoscale science through a peer-reviewed proposal process.
Become a Foundry User
The Molecular Foundry is open to any interested researcher ("user") through a competitive peer-reviewed proposal process, free of charge for users who intend to publish their results.
What the Foundry offers
The Foundry features world-class scientists with expertise across a broad range of disciplines and state-of-the-art, often one-of-a-kind, instrumentation.
Why do other scientists become Foundry Users?
At the Foundry's 2017 Annual User Meeting, we asked some of our users a few questions about why they became Foundry users. Listen to them tell their #MyFoundryStory.
