STC Voucher Program

All full center members are eligible for the Systems Technology Core (STC) Voucher Program. Under this program, CHHE provides 50% of the costs up to $15K/member for $30K STC services for projects with EHS relevance.  

To participate, complete a STC voucher request, which includes estimated costs and a project description. The major approval criterion will be that funds must be used for EHS-related projects.

Update: Due to the pandemic and research restart, from July to December 31, 2021 CHHE full members can use their STC funds to get NGS sequencing done at external vendors such as Duke, UNC-CH, Novagene etc. CHHE will reevaluate this temporary change at the end of 2021.

Ingenuity Pathway Analysis (IPA)

An IPA software license is purchased yearly by CHHE for access by all members and cores. IPA has broad adoption by the life science research community and is cited in thousands of articles for the analysis, integration, and interpretation of data derived from -omics experiments, such as RNA-seq, small RNA-seq, microarrays including miRNA and SNP, metabolomics, and proteomics. Mummichug in MetaboAnalyast and KEGG pathway analysis in Compound Discoverer are also used.
