New grant proposals
UK Med-Bio infrastructure can be leverage when writing a new grant proposal.
Although our hardware has a 5 year projected lifespan, we are already looking to support its continuation and growth via the inclusion of requests for suitable funds on all new grant proposals that will make use of it. We can work with you to provide appropriate costs for the type and amount of storage and compute additions best suited to your proposal; leveraging the existing infrastructure in a highly cost-effective way. In return for this, the project infrastructure can be included in sections on ‘Institutional Support and facilities’ for your proposal, as well as any specific points in the case for support, data sharing statements etc.
UK Med-Bio is supported by a full-time bioinformatician and a systems administrator, and for large projects extending beyond March 2019, it may be appropriate to include costs to underwrite some of their time.
Where extensive bioinformatics support or software development is required for a new project, we interact directly with the Bioinformatics Data Science Group (BDSG) (wiki [College login required], site) to cost appropriate resources that may span both groups.
