Award budget: Fee-free voucher for 10-plex TMT (>7,000 proteins) or 20 sample DIA
Award Period: Samples must be submitted within 4 months from award date
Eligibility: One awarded voucher per laboratory Principal Investigator per year. Priority will be given to researchers funded by NIGMS, funded through the NIGMS-IDeA Program, and early-stage/new investigators working within the mission of NIGMS.

Pre-submission consultation: Interested applicants may contact the resource at IDeAproteomics@uams.edu to discuss the proposed sample analysis and determine voucher eligibility.
Content and form of application submission: Applications are limited to 2 pages (11pt font, single spaced, 0.5 inch margins) and should include the following sections: Project Overview (outlining the specific research question), Preliminary Studies (providing example data to support the proposed proteomics analysis), Quality Control Data (provide evidence of sample quality such as a gel image, verification of 50 micrograms of protein or 25 microliters of plasma/serum, and details on sample homogenization including buffer components), and Data Utilization (discussing how the proteomics data will be used to support work within the scope of NIGMS). An optional pre-submission consultation may be used to determine whether TMT or DIA proteomics would be most appropriate for the study.

Other requirements: For eligibility, recipients will be required to participate in pre- and post-award surveys.
