The Cellular Processes Cluster encourages the use of innovative approaches and technologies that resolve long-standing questions in cell biology. The cluster seeks to support imaginative projects that integrate research on processes at the supramolecular and cellular scales.  The cluster recognizes the need for rigorous, quantitative approaches for cell biology and welcomes multidisciplinary research that includes physical, mathematical, and computational approaches.   Areas of particular interest include live-cell imaging, single-particle analysis of macromolecular assemblies, architectural organization and dynamics of structures over broad dimensional scales.  This cluster entertains proposals in the following general areas of cell biology:

  • Membrane organization and function
  • Organelle biogenesis, maintenance, and trafficking
  • Cytoskeletal dynamics, cell division and motility

As stated in the Grant Proposal Guide, proposals to conduct research motivated primarily by relevance to human diseases and health is not appropriate for the division and will be returned without review.
