The University of Tennessee Genomics Core Facility, managed through UT’s Center for Environmental Biotechnology (CEB), is seeking short proposals for projects that require Next-generation Sequencing (NGS) resources. In collaboration with Illumina, a leading developer, manufacturer, and marketer of NGS instrumentation and supplies, the CEB provides sequencing services on a NovaSeq6000 platform for researchers that require preliminary data in support of near-term grant applications.
UT Core Facilities Program Support FY18 End of Year Request for Proposals
The UT Core Facilities Program (UTCFP) has released a call for funding requests to established UT Core Facilities (UTCFs). This call is intended to provide support to facilities with critical needs prior to the end of FY18. Awards may be used for the purchase or repair of equipment, assistance with the addition of services, or to offset the operational costs of the facility.

UT Core Facilities Brown Bag Series
Beginning Wednesday, September 7, the UT Core Facilities Program will be hosting a series of brown bag lunches to highlight the expertise and capabilities of each of the UT Core Facilities. These talks will be held each Wednesday at noon in Hodges Library, and will feature directors and staff from each of the UT Core Facilities.
Initial Call for Proposals Yields Positive Response for UTCFP
The UT Core Facilities Program (UTCFP) recently announced a call for organizers to submit proposals for the establishment of new UT Core Facilities (UTCFs).
From that initial call, seven groups have elected to explore the benefits of becoming recognized UTCFs and will receive a small amount of financial support from the Office of Research and Engagement to assist with the completion of the application process.
If successful, the addition of these facilities will triple the current size of the UTCFP, adding valuable and unique resources to the research infrastructure of the university.
Core Facilities Program Issues Call for Letters of Intent
In support of the University of Tennessee’s goal to be recognized among the top 25 public research universities, the Office of Research and Engagement is pleased to announce the planned expansion of the UT Core Facilities Program (UTCFP), and is issuing a call to the broader research community to submit Letters of Intent (LOI) for those who may be interested in organizing resources into an officially recognized core facility.
