Chan Zuckerberg Initiative: Essential Open Source Software for Science

The Chan Zuckerberg Initiative invites applications in support of open source software projects that are essential to biomedical research. The goal of the program is to support software maintenance, growth, development, and community engagement for these critical tools. Projects should have already demonstrated impact, can show potential for continued improvement, and expect to deliver added value to the biomedical research community through the proposed activities. Applications will be considered in two categories:

Domain-specific software for analyzing, visualizing, and otherwise working with the specific data types that arise in biomedical science (e.g., genomic sequences, microscopy images, molecular structures).
Foundational tools and infrastructure that enable a wide variety of downstream software across several domains of science and computational research (e.g., numerical computation, data structures, workflows, reproducibility).

LOIs are due October 17, 2023. Invited full applications will be due December 5, 2023.

Please contact Lynn Wong if you are interested in applying to this opportunity.
