User Portal

GlycoMIP’s user program will open in phases. At this time we are accepting inquiries for non-proprietary service and sample requests only. Check back for updates.

To begin your inquiry, contact GlycoMIP. You will be connected with a project advocate, a faculty member with subject expertise, who will guide you through the application process.

Project Advocate

A project advocate will be assigned to all GlycoMIP user projects. A subject matter expert, the project advocate will work directly with users to develop feasible requests and proposals. The project advocate will guide the user throughout the duration of the project.

Project advocates are GlycoMIP faculty members or a designee. To begin the process, you will need to contact us.

Service/Sample Request

After communicating with your assigned project advocate, users will need to complete a Service/Sample Request form, a GlycoMIP Policy Acceptance form, and come to an agreement with GlycoMIP on the scope of work and estimation of fees, if any.  Your project advocate will guide you through the application process.

Service/Sample Request

Collaborative Project Proposal

Research proposals will be required for collaborative projects and will be subject to external review by the GlycoMIP Review Committee. In addition to research feasibility, proposals will also be evaluated for intellectual merit and broader impacts.

Collaborative Project Proposal Guidelines – Coming soon

Fee Structure

All service/sample requests will be charged for consumable supplies required to complete the work. Estimates of the cost of consumable supplies will be provided by the Project Advocate and agreed upon by the user prior to the start of work. Significant deviations from estimates will be communicated by the Project Advocate, and approved by the user before work can continue.

For non-proprietary research, use of GlycoMIP resources and reasonable staff time are not charged fees, with the exception of the cost of consumables. Additional fees may apply for the use of synergistic services (i.e., University Core Services) at VT or UGA and will be communicated by the Project Advocate.

Service/sample requests in support of proprietary research, as well as requests from international users, will be charged full fees as established by the site performing the work: The Controller’s Office at VT and/or the Office of the Comptroller at UGA.
