10x Genomics and Stanford Functional Genomics Facility (SFGF) are Sponsoring a Grant Program for Innovative Investigators at Stanford University

We are pleased to announce the 10x Genomics Visium Spatial Gene Expression Grant Program. This award covers assistance with tissue sectioning, imaging, library preparation, sequencing up to 2B PE reads and bioinformatics support for a pilot project using the Visium application from 10x Genomics.

Uncover the “Where” for every “What” when you map the location of gene expression in tissue

The relationship between cells and their relative locations within a tissue sample can be critical to understanding disease pathology. Visium is a groundbreaking spatial transcriptomics technology that allows scientists to measure all the gene activity in a tissue section and map where the activity is occurring. Already, this technology is leading to new discoveries that will prove instrumental in helping scientists gain a better understanding of biological processes and disease, but we want to hear from you. Share your ideas on how impactful and useful this technology will be in excelling your scientific research.

Challenge Details

Submit an abstract (maximum of 300 words) proposing a project that uses the upcoming Visium Spatial Gene Expression Solution. This solution provides an unbiased, whole transcriptome approach to layering gene expression data onto tissue morphology validated on fresh-frozen tissue samples. Please specify the question you are hoping to answer, how this technology will help you, the sample types used, the number of tissue sections (max 4) being studied, and how the results will inform your future studies. A 10x Genomics and Stanford Functional Genomics Facility (SFGF) committee will review and select the winner based on research creativity, scientific impact, and innovation.

Stanford Functional Genomics Facility (SFGF) will process the selected winner’s samples through the Visium Spatial Gene Expression assay workflow, sequence, and provide data analysis.

Two winners will be selected and will be awarded one (1) 4-sample Tissue Optimization kit and one (1) 4-reaction Visium Spatial Gene Expression solution kit (as specified in the grant program application), along with assistance with tissue sectioning, imaging, library preparation, sequencing up to 2B PE reads and bioinformatics support from Stanford Functional Genomics Facility (SFGF).

Applicants must hold primary research positions and must be planning to submit a grant application to support a broader research aim for which they need pilot data. Applicants may not hold current awards directly related to the proposed research.

Abstract submissions will be accepted starting September 16, 2019 and ending October 15, 2019.
