In times of economic hardship, securing the financing of expensive research equipment is vital to your project. This is where S10 grants play their most significant role. But if you fail to comply with its specific set of guidelines and requirements, your medical research could suffer serious setbacks – including being put on hold for a year or more!

Make sure your research continues to move forward by digging into the major sections of the S10 grant. Receive fail-proof tips for the most important areas, and gain a clear understanding of the review process.

What You Will Learn:

By investing just 60 minutes in this Webinar, you’ll walk away with a clear understanding of the metrics necessary to successfully justify the equipment request; the importance of a strong management plan; recognize appropriate institutional support levels; justify the right instrument, and more!

5 Key Take-Aways:

  • Concrete examples of the types of metrics critical to the application

Meet Your Presenter:

Timothy Bushnell, Ph.D. Dr. Tim Bushnell is currently the scientific and technical director of the flow cytometry core facility at the University of Rochester, which supports the research of 110 PIs. Dr. Bushnell’s main research focus is the development and application of high-end flow cytometric assays to support the research programs of members of the URMC community. One of his great strengths is in being able to collaborate with researchers in a wide variety of fields and disciplines. He has a passion for developing flow cytometry applications, in particular, a current project involving applying imaging cytometry to the detection of minimal residual disease. His efforts have helped the URMC receive two SIG grants for flow cytometry instrumentation acquisition in the last 4 years, and he has also served on study section for flow cytometry S10 grants. Additionally, he is involved in education and training in flow cytometry as well as servicing on the council of the International Society for the Advancement of Cytometry.
