NSF: Reproducible Cells and Organoids via Directed-Differentiation Encoding (RECODE)

Several NSF divisions seek proposals that elucidate mechanisms of, and develop strategies to, direct the differentiation of undifferentiated cells into mature, functional cells or organoids.

The National Science Foundation Divisions of Chemical, Bioengineering, Environmental and Transport Systems, Integrative and Organismal Systems, Molecular and Cellular Biosciences, and Civil, Mechanical, and Manufacturing Innovation seek proposals that elucidate mechanisms of, and develop strategies to, direct the differentiation of undifferentiated cells into mature, functional cells or organoids. Projects responsive to this solicitation must aim to establish a robustly validated and reproducible set of differentiation design rules, mechanistic models, real-time sensing, control, and quality assurance methods, and integrate them into a workable differentiation strategy.

Amount: $2,775,000

Deadline: Nov. 22, 2021 (preliminary); March 31, 2022 (full)
