Subject :Call for Cryo-EM proposals at Brookhaven’s new Laboratory for BioMolecular Structure (LBMS)- Due Ma

Dear Researchers,

The Laboratory for BioMolecular Structure (LBMS) at Brookhaven National Laboratory is now accepting general research proposals through an open proposal process for the July – December (2021-2) cycle. The deadline is Monday, March 15, 2021 at 11:59 pm New York time.

This new, state-of-the-art research center offers scientists access to advanced cryo-electron microscopes (cryo-EMs) for single particle analysis of proteins and macromolecular complexes, as well as cryo-electron tomography (cryo-ET) of cells and tissues.

LBMS operates in two 6-month cycles and all electron microscope (EM) time is requested through the web-based Proposal Allocation, Safety, and Scheduling System (PASS) system. There are a number of modes of access for cryo-EMs at LBMS including General User, Rapid Access, and Block Allocation Groups that all follow a common life cycle that involves the following steps: proposal submission, feasibility evaluation, peer-review, allocation of EM time, scheduling, carrying out the work, and reporting the results and publications.

To create a new proposal, you need to identify the type of proposal, the technique, and the microscope that fits your needs. For more details, see the LBMS User Guide. If you already have an active proposal, you must submit an EM time request (ETR) against that proposal for every cycle that you want EM time through the web-based Proposal Allocation, Safety, and Scheduling System (PASS) system.

If you feel you may need help during the submission process, please create your proposal as early as possible. Please note the User Services Office will be available until 5:00 pm that day.

For instructions on how to submit proposals, see the LBMS User Guide. For questions regarding the LBMS facility, please contact Liguo Wang at [email protected].

We look forward to working with you during these exciting early years of LBMS operations!

Best regards,
