Awards and funding opportunities
The Microbiome Center awards funding for Pilot Projects in order to promote cross-faculty research initiatives in all aspects of microbiome research. These encourage collaborative proposals from Argonne, the MBL or the UChicago, and aspire to initiate new areas of research or education and increase competitiveness for extramural funding. Travel Awards support microbial research related exchange for our students and postdocs. The Beacon Project, inaugurated in 2022 aims to bring a signature project to define the Microbiome Center.
