NIH has issued a solicitation for a Shared Instrumentation Grant Program, specific to biomedical research, that seems like an excellent opportunity for Georgia Tech. Here is a brief description of the purpose:
The ORIP Shared Instrument Grant (SIG) 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 that costs at least $100,000. The maximum award is $600,000. Types of supported instrumentation include, but are not limited to, nuclear magnetic resonance systems, electron and confocal microscopes, mass spectrometers, protein and DNA sequencers, biosensors, x-ray diffractometers, cell sorters, and NMR spectrometers.
While there is no limit to the number of proposals that Georgia Tech can submit, we do need to be mindful of any duplications or similarities in our requests. Therefore, please inform me via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are planning to submit a proposal. All I need is the title of the proposal, the contact PI and a short (2-3 sentences) description of the item(s) you are requesting. Should I need additional information, I'll contact you.
