Dear Woodruff Health Sciences Center Faculty,

One of the five main themes as identified in the FY18-22 Woodruff Health Sciences Center (WHSC) strategic plan is Innovative Discovery.  To help facilitate research initiatives as part of this theme, the Innovative Discovery executive sponsors have established a new pilot funding mechanism for early-career investigators in WHSC to utilize two new 10X single cell sequencing technology platforms.  Please find attached a letter from Emory University Executive Vice President for Health Affairs, Dr. Jonathan Lewin, regarding this opportunity.

For consideration, all proposals must be received by Monday, October 14, 2019 at 5:00 PM.

Emory University provides faculty and students with modern, compliant tools that allow them to perform research quickly and securely. Founded in 1836, Emory University is a private research university located in Atlanta, Georgia with around 18,000 students, 3,000 faculty members, and 36,000 employees. Emory University uses Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), AWS Lambda, and Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) to conduct research. For example, a recent genomics grant required 200 Amazon EC2 instances to be spun up, and researchers were able to complete their work in a matter of days.
