Advanced Cell Diagnostics, a brand of Bio-Techne, is proud to announce the 2022 RNAscope Grant Program for Spatial Biology. The goal of this program is to support innovative research studies designed to advance the understanding of life.

See the “Where” for every “What” by revealing the cellular and sub-cellular location in tissues.

Understand the “Why” by digging deeper.

RNAscope is the gold standard in RNA tissue imaging, backed by over 5,000 research publications. Enabling interrogation of up to 12 different RNA targets in a single FFPE tissue section or up to 48 targets in fixed-frozen or fresh frozen samples, you can easily visualize just the genes you want in any tissue or organism. With access to over 40,000 catalog probes and fast, custom probe design, you can answer your next questions with confidence. If you don’t have access to a histology or imaging core, that’s fine too. RNAscope can be easily performed in your lab using a standard fluorescent microscope.

Often used as a complement to RNAseq, single cell sequencing (scRNA-seq), and spatial profiling applications, with RNAscope you can:

  • Easily resolve heterogenous tissues at single-cell and sub-cellular resolution.
  • Identify spatial and functional cellular relationships within the tissue microenvironment.
  • Determine the importance of gene expression signatures in disease pathology.
  • Visualize low-expressing or difficult biomarkers with single-molecule sensitivity.


Submission is easy. Just send a short summary describing how you would propose using RNAscope to advance your research goals. Winning entries will receive a RNAscope detection kit (along with appropriate probe sets, controls, and sample prep reagents) to support their research project free of charge. Award recipients will be announced by September 16, 2022.


FAQs

  • How do I apply?  Simply fill out the application form detailing your project and submit by September 2, 2022.
  • Who is eligible for this grant program? The grant program is open to individuals working in academic research institutes. Eligible participants must reside within North America or Europe. Other restrictions may apply.
  • What does the grant provide? Successful grant applicants will receive 1 HiPlex v2 kit and the probes, controls, and ancillary products required to support their spatial expression experiment free of charge based on project description (subject to submission of experimental plan). The grant does not include funding of Professional Assay Services projects.
  • When is the submission deadline? All entries must be received by September 2, 2022.
  • What is the judging criteria? Each entry will be judged by our team of ACD and Bio-Techne scientists on scientific merit, innovation, and fit with HiPlex v2 technology.
  • What is required if I am awarded a grant? The grant winner will be required to be available for participation in promotional activities in the first nine months following announcement of the award. This could include a conducting a webinar, assistance in write-up of a case study, or being a featured researcher in a spotlight/website/newsletter story.

Contest terms:

1) One entry only per individual. Once you have submitted your entry, you may not amend it. Applications must be submitted by September 2, 2022 to qualify.

2) Qualified entries will be judged by a team of ACD and Bio-Techne scientists for appropriateness and completeness in response. Each entry will be judged based on our view of how well the entry reflects scientific merit, innovation, and fit with RNAscope technology.

3) Successful grant applicants will receive 1 RNAscope HiPlex v2 kit, and sufficient probes, controls, and ancillary products free of charge to support their spatial expression project based on the grant proposal project description, subject to approval of the experimental plan by ACD.

4) Grant award winners agree to make their RNAscope HiPlex v2 datasets available for confidential internal review by ACD within 120 days following notification of winning an award.


5) Grant winners agree to be available for reasonable promotional activities at ACD’s request for a period of nine months following announcement of a prize award. Promotional activities may include, but are not limited to:
