The Chan Zuckerberg Initiative (CZI) invites applications in the field of dynamic imaging that will support the development of new tools or significant enhancements of existing tools to monitor biological processes in motion, across time, and across spatial scales. This grant program will provide 2.5-year challenge grants for projects with specified proof-of-concept milestones.
The long-term goal of this RFA, part of CZI’s Frontiers of Imaging effort, is to drive technology development aimed at measuring cellular and molecular processes in real time in intact, living systems. Priority will be given to proposals for methods developed for imaging in intact tissues or primary cells rather than immortalized cell lines. This opportunity is specifically aimed at technology development; it is not intended to support question-driven basic or translational research, clinical trials, or drug development. Preliminary data is encouraged but not required.
Deadline: Aug. 23, 2022
