NSLSII Beamtime Allocation Group Cohort at Penn

Penn Beamtime Allocation Group (BAG) Cohort | NSLS II

Kushol Gupta is the PI of an active BAG cohort with NSLS II for X-ray Crystallography (AMX, FMX), X-ray Footprinting, and Small-Angle X-ray Scattering. This cohort currently includes several groups from across Penn, Wistar, CHOP, and Fox Chase Cancer Center. Block Allocation Groups (BAGs) are a mode of beam time access at NSLS-II intended for groups of researchers that want to combine their short beam time requests into a single proposal in order to permit greater flexibility in beam time allocation and scheduling. BAG proposals may be motivated by shared scientific interest, geographical location, affiliation, common experimental setup, or other synergistic reasons. Combining the beam time of individual groups permits greater flexibility in the choice of projects and samples during a given allocation period and offers the individuals in the BAGs the benefit of access to more regular allocation of beam time.

Laboratories interested in joining this cohort should contact Dr. Gupta at kgupta@pennmedicine.upenn.edu
