MacroSystems Biology

Important Announcement

The MacroSystems Biology program has been placed on a one-year hiatus as of December 2014. New proposals will not be accepted in 2015. A new solicitation will be released in 2016.

Current MacroSystems Biology awardees should continue to review the information in the MacroSystems Biology Program Guidelines and communicate with their cognizant program officers for any issues related to their grants.

If you are interested in submitting a proposal to develop related research in the biological sciences, please contact a program officer in the appropriate Division, program or cluster in the Directorate for Biological Sciences at the beginning stages of developing your ideas to discuss suitability for the program. A staff directory is available at: http://www.nsf.gov/staff/staff_list.jsp?org=BIO&from_org=BIO
