Molecular Foundations for Biotechnology (MFB) Solicitation NSF 23-554

Please join the Divisions of Chemistry (CHE) and Molecular and Cellular Biosciences (MCB) on February 15, 2023 at 2:00-3:00PM ET for an information session on the new MFB solicitation NSF 23-554 (https://beta.nsf.gov/funding/opportunities/molecular-foundations-biotechnology-mfb-0). This solicitation calls for proposals to develop and provide proof-of-concept testing of tools, methodology and/or theory that address one or both themes below: 

  1. Accelerate fundamental discoveries about RNA structure, interactions, and functions at molecular or genome and transcriptome-wide scales, and/or
  2. Create innovative RNA-based applications for various sectors of the bioeconomy such as agriculture, energy production, or efforts to mitigate the effects of climate change, improve environmental sustainability, and/or combat global pandemics. 

The office hour will deliver a summary of the solicitation and answer questions from the community. 

Pre-registration is required: https://nsf.zoomgov.com/webinar/register/WN_Q3-pF0_xSKmGOLLt1ltpoA
