>Call for User Proposals:Â  The Molecular Foundry
>Call for Proposals Begins:Â  Wednesday, September 2, 2009
>Submission Deadline:Â Â Wednesday, October 14, 2009
>Dear Colleagues,
><http://foundry.lbl.gov/>The Molecular Foundry 
>at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL), 
>a Department of Energy (DOE) national 
>nanoscience user facility, is currently 
>accepting requests for user access to its 
>instruments, capabilities and skilled technical 
>staff from scientists and engineers who are 
>seeking to enhance their own research 
>projects.  Requests from potential users, in 
>the form of web-based proposals, must be 
>received not later than October 14, 2009 to be 
>considered in this current call.Â
>The mission of LBNL’s Molecular Foundry is to 
>provide researchers from academic, government 
>and industrial laboratories from around the 
>world access to instruments, materials, 
>technical expertise and training in 
>nanoscience.  Access to the Foundry is free of 
>charge for research that is in the public domain 
>and intended for open publication. Â Users 
>wishing to generate as well as maintain 
>confidential information and data will pay 
>full-cost-recovery rate, but also have greater 
>latitude regarding collaboratively generated intellectual property. Â
>The Molecular Foundry hosts six Facilities 
>focusing on the multidisciplinary development 
>and understanding of “soft” (biological and 
>polymeric) and “hard” (inorganic and 
>microfabricated) nanostructured building blocks 
>and their integration into complex functional 
>assemblies. These research facilities serve as 
>a particularly valuable resource for users 
>pursuing multidisciplinary research in 
>nanoscience (e.g., physicists interested in 
>learning biological techniques, biologists 
>seeking nanofabrication expertise, 
>experimentalists pursing theoretical studies). 
>All projects that may benefit from Foundry 
>capabilities are welcome, particularly those 
>which relate to our broad research themes and 
>reflecting areas of expertise of the Molecular 
>Foundry staff. The Foundry strongly encourages 
>project submissions that take advantage of our 
>other LBNL user facilities, including the 
>Advanced Light Source, Energy Sciences Network, 
>Joint Genome Institute, the National Energy 
>Research Scientific Center, and the National Center for Electron Microscopy.Â
>Prospective users are invited and strongly 
>encouraged to contact Molecular Foundry staff in 
>the respective theme areas to discuss proposal 
>ideas and to learn more about special 
>capabilities of particular interest (visit the 
>“Our Scientists” section at the Foundry web 
>site). We encourage the discussion of your 
>proposal's central ideas to ensure the 
>Foundry has the appropriate facilities, 
>equipment and staff to perform your requested 
>research.  Decisions reached in this round of 
>proposal submission will be announced 
>approximately eight weeks after submission 
>deadline; for this call we anticipate a 
>notification date of December 21, 2009.  All 
>approved projects will receive user access and 
>work may begin as soon as scheduled after this notification. Â
