New Solicitation- Transitions to Excellence in Molecular and Cellular Bioscience Research (Transitions)
January 6, 2020
MCB recently released a new solicitation (NSF 20-505), which offers opportunities to mid-career or later-stage researchers to utilize a sabbatical (or similar professional development activity ) to transition into a new research area that has a strong potential to transform molecular and cellular biology research. Full details and program requirements can be found in the solicitation. As with MCB no-deadline core program, proposals will be accepted any time.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) is an independent federal agency that supports fundamental research and education across all fields of science and engineering. In fiscal year (FY) 2020, its budget is $8.3 billion. NSF funds reach all 50 states through grants to nearly 2,000 colleges, universities and other institutions. Each year, NSF receives more than 50,000 competitive proposals for funding and makes about 12,000 new funding awards.
