Important Information for Proposers

A revised version of the NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG) (NSF 15-1), is effective for proposals submitted, or due, on or after December 26, 2014. The PAPPG is consistent with, and, implements the new Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards (Uniform Guidance) (2 CFR 200). Please be advised that the guidelines contained in NSF 15-1 apply to proposals submitted in response to this funding opportunity.




The Functional & Regulatory Systems thematic area focuses on fundamental physiological mechanisms in plants and animals and how they have evolved, with emphasis on organisms as integrated systems. This area includes comparative physiology, neurophysiology, mechanisms of solute transport, and comparative or evolutionary immunology. It includes research at the genetic, genomic, cellular, tissue, organ, system, and organismal levels of organization. Also supported in this area are studies of neuronal and glial cell function and synaptic mechanisms as they relate to integrated organismal systems. Proposals for computational modeling to further understanding of physiological processes in organisms are encouraged.

Program Directors:

Dona Boggs.  Integrative Animal Biology, comparative and molecular animal physiology, including immunology, endocrinology, and physiological energetics

Paul Farel.  Integrative Cellular Neuroscience, cellular interactions in the nervous system

Michael Mishkind.  Integrative Plant Biology, plant physiology and molecular biology, including metabolism and mechanisms of response to abiotic factors and growth regulators
