Chan Zuckerberg Initiative: Single-Cell Biology Data Insights

The Chan Zuckerberg Initiative invites applications for the second of three cycles for 18-month projects focused on advancing tools and resources that make it possible to gain greater insights into health and disease from single-cell biology datasets.

Projects should use and gain insights into health and disease from existing single-cell datasets to help accelerate progress toward challenges associated with the compilation and exploration of large atlas-scale data. Projects may include dedicated efforts to refine existing computational tools, benchmark classes of tools, improve standards, integrate available data that enables greater biological insight, develop new features that support interoperability of data or tools, and other major challenges brought forward. Two levels of grants will be awarded:

Focused Projects (up to $200,000): Will support the efforts of 1-2 FTEs on a given project and will generally be directed towards benchmarking tools, extension of existing toolchains, or curating/integrating existing datasets to boost their utility for the field

Expanded Projects (up to $400,000): Will support the efforts of 2-4 FTEs to improve standards, improve toolchain interoperability or undertake more extensive integration or benchmarking tasks.

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