The Chan Zuckerberg Initiative invites applications for challenge grants in the field of Visual Proteomics. This Request for Applications (RFA) aims to advance technology directed at the goal of obtaining near-atomic resolution readouts inside the cell.
The Chan Zuckerberg Initiative (CZI) seeks to support 2.5-year challenge grants in the field of visual proteomics. The ability to view protein molecules in cells and monitor changes in their structure, quantity, distribution, and interactions is key to understanding what causes diseases and finding treatments and cures. This grant program will advance technology development for the field of visual proteomics and aim to obtain near-atomic resolution readouts inside the cell. The funding mechanism will be targeted investments in the form of challenge grants with specified proof-of-concept milestones.
