User Portal

Simple requests for facility use, such as methods development, single-instrument characterizations or simple modeling needs, will be submitted as a Service/Sample Request.  Service/Sample Requests are intended to lead to Project Proposals.  Your Project Advocate can help you determine the proper request mechanism.

If you already have a Project Advocate and have discussed your needs with that person proceed to the “Request GlycoMIP Scientific Services” section below. If you have not yet spoken with anyone about working with GlycoMIP, you can contact us and we will connect you with a Project Advocate, a faculty member with subject expertise, who will guide you through the 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 Service/Sample Requests and Project Proposals. The Project Advocate will guide the user throughout the duration of the project.

Project Advocates are GlycoMIP Leadership Team members, GlycoMIP faculty members or designated Scientific Staff members. To begin the process, you will need to contact us.

Request GlycoMIP Scientific Services

Following a discussion with your Project Advocate to determine if you need a Service/Sample Request or Project Proposal, submit an application using the link below.

Fee Structure

All scientific services 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, US-based 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 and Project Proposals 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.
