Beacon Projects for the Microbiome Center

New funding opportunity

The Microbiome Center Beacon Projects have launched

The Center seeks to fund projects that address the common theme of temporal dynamics in aquatic microbial populations, particularly diel patterns or rhythmicity, that can be integrated into a "Beacon Project". In a 2-step iterative process, we seek to fund 4–5 projects at $20–25K each, engaging researchers who want to eventually integrate their data or methodology across all funded projects. The closing date for phase one is October 28th, applications can be made through the UChicago funding portal link below.
