This is a great opportunity to guide research funding that could lead to large Center funding for your team! NSF's Directorate for Biological Sciences seeks ideas from the community on fundamental biological research questions and topics that are poised for major advances. Ideally these ideas would span multiple levels of organization in living systems and require expertise from diverse biological subdisciplines.
The next of the highly popular Pacific Northwest SEMI Breakfast Forums will be held on March 1 at Portland State University. There is a student/postdoc discount code that enables the low (80% off) price of $15: PNWSTUDENT.
