 Dear FUN members

The Faculty for Undergraduate Neuroscience (FUN) is pleased to announce an
extension to the  *Call for Proposals *for the 2021 Equipment Loan Program.
Annually, the FUN Equipment Loan Program works through collaborations with
equipment vendors to develop opportunities for neuroscience faculty to
offer their products, services, and training on their equipment for up to a
two-year loan with the intent to purchase the equipment at the end of the
grant program.

The vendors are always willing to work with the scientists so please apply
even if you want a different version of the equipment listed here. This
year we had several applications for Noldus and ADI instruments we did not
get applications for wonderful equipment from *Kent Scientific Corporation
(KST) and Stoelting*

 We still have the generous donations from  *Kent Scientific Corporation
(KST) and Stoelting *and are accepting applications for proposals
requesting a loan for equipment supporting neuroscience faculty research
and/or teaching for FUN members.

All current dues-paying members of FUN are eligible to apply for this
program. If you are not a member and would like to become one, please go to
https://www.funfaculty.org/assoc_subscribe.asp and go to the member’s link
to register. Grant program applications will be submitted electronically as
a single pdf file to the Co-Chairs of the ELP program:
*divya.sitaraman at csueastbay.edu*
<divya.sitaraman at csueastbay.edu?subject=FUN%20Equipment%20Loan%20Program>
and *neuwirthl at oldwestbury.edu*
<neuwirthl at oldwestbury.edu?subject=FUN%20Equipment%20Loan%20Program>.

The deadline for the extended FUN 2021 Equipment Loan Program application
submission is: May 19th, 2021 11:59 pm (PST). Awards will be announced by
the end of May so you can still have all the equipment for your summer

Our Just for Mouse Stereotaxic was specifically designed for use with
knock-out and transgenic mice. It is far and away our most popular
stereotaxic instrument. The stereotaxic has an integrated warming base that
aids in improving surgical outcomes and overall longevity. A key feature of
this instrument is its easy-to-read digital display, which allows for 10µm
resolution and the coordinate zeroing feature eliminates the need for
calculations.  The stereotaxic package also includes Stoelting’s
Stereotaxic Surgical Instrument kit. This kit contains all the necessary
tools for mouse stereotaxic surgery; Stoelting surgical instruments
including a double sterilizing tray that will fit all the tools. Indeed,
this kit also includes the Kane Clamp, exclusive to Stoelting for
retracting the skin for optimal view of the skull without causing trauma to
the surrounding tissue.
