OCTRI Team Science: Advancing Transdisciplinary Microbiome Research

This award mechanism supports projects that incorporate team science methods to facilitate transdisciplinary, multi-institutional collaborations on projects investigating the microbiome of organisms, the environment, or interactions between the two. 

Successful applications will build or enhance existing inter‐institutional teams and collaborations in the field of microbiome research by bringing a diverse team together to generate ideas or data to support the writing and submission of state‐of‐the–field concept pieces/reviews with the goals of facilitating team building and increasing external fundability due to evidence of joint publication. This funding mechanism can also be utilized to support inter‐institutional microbiome research projects to get "over the last hurdle" in an already well‐developed study process (e.g. in response to grant reviewers or manuscript reviewers) but for which there are no other funds available.

Deadline: April 30, 2019

Amount: Up to $5,000; see RFA for additional details

The Request for Applications has complete details about submission process, eligibility, and application instructions.
