COMULIS COST ACTION: FUNDING FOR CORRELATED MULTIMODAL IMAGING PROJECTS
COMULIS is an EU-funded COST Action that aims at fueling urgently needed collaborations in the field of correlated multimodal imaging (CMI), promoting and disseminating its benefits through showcase pipelines, and paving the way for its technological advancement and implementation as a versatile tool in biological and preclinical research. CMI combines two or more modalities to gather holistic information about the same specimen. It creates a composite view of the sample with multidimensional information about its macro, meso- and microscopic structure, dynamics, function and chemical composition. Since no single technique can reveal all these details, CMI is the only way to understand biomedical processes mechanistically.
In order to encourage correlated multi-modal imaging projects, COMULIS Short Term Scientific Missions (STSMs) provides travel grants to individuals wishing to explore new imaging techniques. The grants are presented in the form of a lump sum of up to 3,500 Euros (depending on the duration of the mission), to cover travel and subsistence. COMULIS COST accepts applications on a continuous basis from Early Career Investigators and Experienced Imaging Scientists who would like to travel internationally to collaborate with a Host facility on a Correlated Multi-modal imaging project. There is a rapid review process and around 10 grants are awarded every year.
In addition, COMULIS STSM can provide funding for core facility staff to learn a new imaging technique or work with new software tools to bring the expertise back to their own facility.
Applications can be submitted any time & will be reviewed at the end of each month.
