User Portal

GlycoMIP’s user program will open in phases. At this time we are accepting inquiries for non-proprietary, U.S.-based Research Project proposals and Service/Sample requests only. Check back for updates regarding proprietary projects and international requests.

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 Lead Team members, GlycoMIP faculty members or designated Research Staff members. 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 – non-proprietary
Service/Sample Request – proprietary – Coming soon

Research Project Proposal

GlycoMIP is currently accepting proposals for non-proprietary, U.S.-based research projects.  Check back for instructions for proprietary and international proposal submissions.

A proposal is required for all research projects, and is subject to review by the GlycoMIP Leadership Team or Reviewer Committee, as described in the Research Project Proposal Guidelines.

After communicating with your assigned project advocate, users will complete a Research Project Proposal form, to include a proposal and signed GlycoMIP Policy Acceptance form.  Following review, your project advocate will provide feedback and an estimate of fees, if any, and discuss scheduling.

Research Project Proposal Submission – non-proprietary
Research Project Proposal Submission – proprietary – 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.
