Montana INBRE is excited to announce a pilot grant program for projects that utilize mass spectrometry-based metabolomics.

Montana INBRE is making available a total of $10,000 to facilitate data generation to establish feasibility, support research projects, and generate data for publications. Projects may focus on targeted or untargeted metabolomics.


  • This program is open to current INBRE investigators within the three inaugural RAIN states – Idaho, New Mexico, and Montana.

To Apply:

  • Please provide the names and institutional affiliations of project lead and co-leads, as well as the proposed work’s relation to a current, future, or past INBRE project, if any
  • Please provide a one-page description of the project that includes a title, summary, hypothesis to be tested, sample types to be analyzed, projected number of samples, and description of the information that would constitute a successful experiment. If you are modeling your study after a publication, please include references
  • Please email complete proposal as single .PDF document to:

Notes and Deadlines:

  • The MSU Proteomics, Metabolomics, and Mass Spectrometry Facility is willing to work with researchers on experimental design and methods for analysis
  • Priority will be given to projects that come from investigators in more than one of the Regional Alliance of INBRE Network (RAIN) states, which includes Idaho, Montana, and New Mexico
  • Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis until funds have been exhausted or until Dec 31, 2017.
  • Data must be collected before April 30, 2018
