WUCCI Micro-Grant Programs

Recent advances in cellular imaging enable unprecedented dynamic and spatial resolution in studies of cells, tissues, and animals, creating exciting opportunities for discovery in a broad range of basic and translational research aimed at understanding human diseases. The Washington University Center for Cellular Imaging (WUCCI) provides access to cutting-edge microscopy and sample preparation equipment along with technical expertise to promote and facilitate the highest possible quality cellular imaging and analysis in these studies. In order to enable investigators to jump-start their research studies using the WUCCIs resources the following three micro-grant programs are available


1. Diabetes Research Center (DRC) - Imaging Scholarships

Diabetes Research Center (DRC) - Imaging Scholarships

Funded 12/01/2018 – 11/30/2019

As a part of the new Cell and Tissue Imaging Core, we are pleased to be able to offer scholarships to DRC members to support the use of advanced cellular imaging and analysis tools to basic and translational studies of diabetes. The scholarship program will provide a funds of $500 (for smaller projects) or $1000 (for larger projects) for use in covering the costs of cellular imaging studies using the WUCCI, with the goal of scholarship support covering 50% of the expected chargebacks for expected project expenses. The scholarships will be awarded on a first-come-first-served basis, and must be expended by November 30th, 2018.

Eligibility: DRC members with a faculty appointment.

Submission: Submit completed application form (download) to fitzp@wustl.edu
