RNAi Application

  • This application is designed for academic investigators interested in performing a screen at ICCB-Longwood.
  • A new application must be submitted for each screen that is proposed at ICCB-L. If you have a project that you would like to screen at ICCB-L and do not have an assigned screen number, please complete the application form below. 
  • Please review all information on this page before you submit an application for screening at ICCB-Longwood.

We are currently accepting applications on a rolling basis. If the facility becomes oversubscribed, we will institute a waiting list.

A fee is charged for access to RNAi screening at ICCB-Longwood, please see RNAi Fees for details. 

Before screening, you will need to review and agree to the ICCB-Longwood protocol and data sharing policies outlined in the ICCB-Longwood RNAi User Agreement. We must have a signed copy for each collaborator before use of the screening facility is scheduled. If possible, please submit the signed RNAi User Agreement at the same time as the completed RNAi Screening Application. Note that if you are carrying out both small molecule and RNAi screens at ICCB-Longwood, you need to complete both a small molecule and an RNAi user agreement.

Often investigators request a letter of support for grants intended to fund a screen. Please understand that we can only write such a letter if we know we can accommodate your screen. Therefore, please try to submit your screen application well in advance of grant deadlines and notify us if you would like a letter of support.
