Synthetic Biology for Engineering Applications (R01)

Synthetic Biology for Engineering Applications (R01)

This Funding Oppurtunity Announcement (FOA) invites applications to conduct research to advance the understanding and application of synthetic biology for human health. It will support 1) the development of innovative tools and technologies in synthetic biology and 2) their application in biomedical research and human health. An integrative research plan based on collaborations of synthetic biologists with computational scientists, cell biologists, engineers, and/or physician scientists is strongly recommended. Early stage investigators in Synthetic Biology are especially encouraged to apply.

Open date (Earlieist submission date) is September 5, 2017.

Applications are encouraged to apply early to allow adequate time to make any corrections to errors found in the application during the submmisssion process by the due date.
