RESEARCH FUNDING

Synthetic Biology for Technology Development

This program supports the development of tools to enable synthetic biology approaches and the use of synthetic biology to develop technologies relevant to NIBIB-supported program areas. 

Emphasis
Emphasis is on the design and wholesale construction of new biological parts and systems and the re-design of existing, natural biological systems for tailored purposes.

Additional emphasis
Examples of tools to enable synthetic biology approaches include but are not limited to:

Examples of the use of synthetic biology approaches to develop technologies that are relevant to other NIBIB-supported program areas include but are not limited to:

Notes
Inquiries and applications are managed by the Synthetic Biology for Technology Development program, and awarded grants are managed in their relevant NIBIB programs.
