The IGI invites PIs from UC Berkeley, UC San Francisco, UC Davis, and LBL to propose projects that will help expand the new IGI initiatives in plants and microbes and lead to potential applications in agricultural and environmental sectors.
A total of approximately $3M/year will be allocated through a two-stage, competitive, peer-reviewed process. Preproposal submissions are open to eligible PIs and full proposal submissions will be by invitation.
Preproposal Deadline is March 10, 2017
In addition to research in life science fields, the physical sciences, and computational biology, we encourage proposals in broader areas, including social sciences, law, policy, and economics. Regardless of the field, PIs can and should propose groundbreaking ideas that relate broadly to genomics and genome editing and are complementary to, or build upon, currently-funded IGI research.
Visit the preproposal submission site for more information.
We want to encourage the development and application of next-generation genome engineering technology and wish to combine resources and expertise whenever possible. To achieve this goal, the IGI is actively seeking new members through partnerships with scientists from both academic institutions and the biotechnology industry to add to our ongoing collaborations with academic and commercial partners. If you have an innovative idea for a collaborative project and that will complement our current portfolio, please email [email protected] or look for an upcoming IGI request for proposals in your area of expertise.
