DUE DATES

Full Proposal Window:  October 1, 2014 - October 31, 2014

SYNOPSIS

"Note:  For proposals with significant emphasis on sustainable chemistry, consider making proposal submissions to this program with the Proposal Title as:  ‘SusChEM: Name of Your Proposal'.  For more information, see the DCL on SusChEM (http://www.nsf.gov/pubs/2013/nsf13013/nsf13013.pdf), a new NSF Emphasis Area."   

The Chemistry of Life Processes (CLP) Program supports investigations at the interface of Chemistry and Biology in which the primary knowledge contributions and innovations are in the chemistry aspects of the project; for example, in the study of molecular structure and reaction mechanism of biologically important systems.  The research supported by CLP addresses the fundamental chemistry involved in the function of biomolecules and that of molecules used in probing biological systems. Projects typically employ experimental and/or theoretical approaches to study the chemistry of proteins, nucleic acids, carbohydrates or lipids.  The scope of the research and the methods used to conduct the research are intrinsically interdisciplinary.

Proposals that predominantly address biological problems are more appropriate for the Division of Molecular and Cellular Biosciences (MCB) at NSF.  Proposals that address biomedical problems are more appropriate for the National Institutes of Health or other health-directed funding agencies.
