A new solicitation has been issued by the Directorate for Biological Sciences that is relevant to DEB Investigators, NSF 21-543.
The Integrative Research in Biology (IntBIO) program replaces the Rules of Life track, which was previously a part of the core program solicitations in the four Divisions of the Directorate for Biological Sciences. The new program refines and expands the former submission track.
This solicitation invites submission of collaborative proposals that tackle bold questions in biology and require an integrated approach to make substantive progress. The collaborative interdisciplinary teams should also be fully engaged in the training and education of the next generation of scientists who will be future leaders in integrative research.
Note that proposal submissions to IntBIO have a deadline of March 16, 2021. Also note that, as BIO progresses in migrating proposal submissions to Research.gov, submissions to IntBIO must be made through Research.gov or Grants.gov.
Investigators are encouraged to explore the solicitation and to contact one of the Program Officers listed on the IntBio web page for more information. Additional information about this opportunity will be provided during the January 2021 DEB Virtual Office Hour.
