The cluster seeks theory-driven predictive investigations of diverse cellular and subcellular systems. Research projects are encouraged that use multidisciplinary physical, chemical, mathematical and computational approaches to provide novel techniques and integrative insight into fundamental cellular functions. Emphasis will be placed on innovative projects in plants, microbes and nontraditional model species. Research leading to clearly defined measurement standards throughout cell science is expected.

The cluster encourages proposals in the following areas:

  • Predictive understanding of the behavior of living cells through integration of modeling and experimentation
  • Integrative cellular function across broad spatiotemporal scales, from single molecules to whole cells
  • Origin, evolution and function of cells, organelles and microcompartments
