Glycoproteomic Innovator Grant: Run up to 200 samples for biomarker discovery with GlycoVision. Apply now until Aug 16, 2024!
Now Open!

Glycoproteomic Innovator Grant

InterVenn Biosciences is pleased to announce the inaugural Glycoproteomic Innovator Grant, and is welcoming applications from July 8 to August 16, 2024.

This award is an exciting opportunity for academic researchers to utilize our powerful GlycoVision™ Platform to uncover invaluable insights into the mechanisms of health and disease. See our publications to understand how glycoproteomics is a powerful new lens to look at disease.

Combining advanced techniques in mass spectrometry, biochemistry and artificial intelligence with bioinformatics tools, we explore how proteins are glycosylated and how these modifications affect protein function. Together, we can discover a spectrum of novel, high-performing biomarkers to revolutionize our understanding of disease diagnosis, progression, pathways and therapeutic response.

Apply now and tell us what research questions you want to answer with this project.

Award Details

Grant recipients will be awarded with up to 200 human serum or plasma samples to be processed on the GlycoVision biomarker discovery targeted panel, together with an annotated data deliverable.

Submission Guidelines

Applicants should submit a short proposal of 500 words or less, outlining a pilot research project which uses the GlycoVision Platform.

All applications will be reviewed based on the following criteria:

  • The overall impact to the field of study
  • The originality of the proposal, clarity of goals and outcomes
  • A clear approach and design which matches the goals and outcomes
  • A description of how the glycoproteomic data and analysis are intended to be used
  • What the next steps that the researcher intends to take with this additional knowledge
  • How the GlycoVision data increases insight into health and disease for their given focus area
