GU Proposal

General User (GU) proposals are for access to both screening and high-end EMs at LBMS. These proposals are peer-reviewed by the LBMS Proposal Review Panel. Each project needs to be completed over the 2-year lifetime of the proposal.

RA Proposal

Rapid Access (RA) proposals are only for rapid access to the LBMS high-end EM for “hot topics” or straightforward experiments with a fast turnaround time. Rapid Access proposals are valid for one LBMS EM time cycle and typically request a very small amount of EM time (e.g. one or two days).

BAG Proposal

Block Allocation Group (BAG) proposals are for a group of PIs to access both screening and high-end EMs at LBMS over the 2-year lifetime. These proposals are peer-reviewed by the LBMS Proposal Review Panel.
