Biophotonics III


The Division of Bioengineering and Environmental Systems (BES) of the National Science Foundation (NSF) announces the third in a series of Biophotonics Partnership initiatives seeking high risk/high return, multidisciplinary studies of novel concepts in biophotonics. Incremental advances of existing technologies will not be considered. NIH and DARPA will participate in the reviews and identify proposals of mutual interest and may provide co-funding for programs of high quality that meet their programatic and relevancy requirements. The reviews and panels will be run by NSF utilizing the NSF merit review process. All awards will be made by NSF and will be subject to NSF terms and conditions.
