The National Science Foundation’s Directorate for Biological Sciences (BIO) envisions the creation of “Integration Institutes” to support collaborative teams of researchers at a level not feasible in most existing core programs and over a more extended timeframe than is typical of standard NSF awards. These Institutes will enable research and training in a truly integrated environment. The NSF has issued a Dear Colleague Letter that seeks ideas from the community on fundamental biological research questions and topics that would span multiple levels of organization in living systems and require expertise from diverse biological subdisciplines.

This is a call, not for research proposals, but for high-level ideas.

See https://www.nsf.gov/pubs/2019/nsf19027/nsf19027.jsp for more information and how to respond.

The deadline for submissions is March 1, 2019.
