The CODEX is supported by S10OD030338.


VUMC Submissions to the NIH S10 Programs

VUMC Internal Proposals closed April 1. Instructions are archived below for reference.

Contact amy.f.martinez@vumc.org with any questions. 

Program Overview

The NIH S10 Instrumentation program encourages applications from groups of NIH-supported investigators to purchase or upgrade a single item of expensive, specialized, commercially available instrumentation or an integrated system. Types of instruments supported by S10 funding include, but are not limited to X-ray diffraction systems, nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and mass spectrometers, DNA and protein sequencers, biosensors, electron and confocal microscopes, cell-sorters, and biomedical imagers.

VUMC investigators who intend to apply to either of the S10 programs below should submit an internal proposal for review. An internal proposal is required for all projects and will be used to arrange matching funds and letters of support. Proposals submitted in collaboration with an SOM core facility or shared resource will be prioritized for matching funds.

Shared Instrumentation Grant (SIG) Program:

High-End Instrumentation (HEI) Grant Program:

Note: VUMC will not qualify for the Basic Instrumentation Grant (BIG) program (PAR-21-125) 

VUMC Internal Application Process

Submit a VUMC internal proposal by April 1 via https://redcap.link/s10program.  Late submissions may be ineligible for matching funds.  Investigators are strongly encouraged to read the appropriate RFA(s) and guidance document prior to submission.

Investigators should submit a brief expression of intent to amy.f.martinez@vumc.org prior to starting an internal application. Include PI, partnering core, and brief equipment description (2-3 sentences). Expressions of intent will be used to assess for scientific overlap and ensure that VU and VUMC do not prepare competing proposals.

VUMC investigators: Contact amy.f.martinez@vumc.org with any questions about the program requirements, eligibility or institutional process.

Core Facilities Vouchers for S10 Award Citations

Internal Funding Opportunity

NIH requires VUMC to submit a report of S10-awarded instrument performance each year.  An important part of this report is data related to the publications impact of these awards. The Office of Research encourages all researchers to specifically cite the appropriate S10 grant award(s) when publishing data produced using this NIH-funded equipment.  As an incentive, the Office of Research is offering core vouchers to all investigators who submit publication citations for S10 instrument awards within their NIH reporting period.

For each verified citation of an S10 award, an investigator will receive vouchers redeemable for $250 in VUMC core services.

Voucher Program Eligibility

  • ANY user of an eligible S10-funded instrument may apply!
  • The user must cite the S10, including the NIH award number (e.g. 1S10OD016245-01), in the manuscript's "Acknowledgements" section, or as specified by the journal.
  • The list of eligible S10 awards and their recommended acknowledgement text appears in the table below
