Now Accepting Proposals for the Kavli Microbiome Ideas Challenge
Is your research focusing on new methods that will help promote the field of microbiome research? ASM is now accepting proposal submissions supporting development of next generation scientific tools for investigating life on a microbial scale across many environments.
Led by the American Society for Microbiology (ASM), and carried out in partnership with the American Chemical Society (ACS) and American Physical Society (APS), the Kavli Foundation has committed $1 million dollars to the Kavli Microbiome Ideas Challenge.
This Ideas Challenge recognizes the quintessential need for an interdisciplinary approach to microbiome research and invites the broad scientific community to submit their ideas for novel experimental tools and methods aimed at understanding microbial interactions and function from new perspectives.
Grant submissions for the Kavli Ideas Challenge open October 24th, 2016 and will close December 2nd, 2016 at 11:59 PM CST.
