Dear Colleagues,

  my apologies for the slightly off-topic and US-centric posting, but I felt this was of sufficient interest to the structural biology community at large. The NIH, specifically the National Institute of General Medical Sciences, is in the process of considering how best to support the development of biomedical technologies, and access to those technologies. They have issued a request for information:


  This covers a very broad range of biomedical activities, including the development of new hardware and software for techniques such as NMR, crystallography, SAXS, and cryo-EM. It also includes the provision of technologies through facilities such as synchrotrons and other national research centers. For those of us in the US this provides an excellent, and rare, opportunity for researchers to voice their thoughts about how important technology development and national facilities are to the success of structural biology research. Please note that the deadline for response is August 7th.
