The Chan Zuckerberg Initiative invites applications for its single cell data insights cycle 2 funding opportunity. This supports projects that aim to 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. Grants are offered under one of the following categories:
•grants that primarily support the effort of one to two full-time employees (FTEs) working on a given project, generally directed towards benchmarking tools, extension of existing toolchains, or curating or integrating existing datasets to boost their utility for the field, worth USD 200,000 each;
•networked grants that require the participation of two to four FTEs, which may require dedicated effort from multiple projects to improve standards, improve toolchain interoperability, or undertake more extensive integration or benchmarking tasks, worth USD 400,000 each.
Applications may be submitted by domestic and foreign non-profit organisations, public and private institutions, such as colleges, universities, hospitals, laboratories, units of state and local government, and eligible agencies of the federal government. For-profit organisations are not eligible to receive funding but may be involved in projects as a collaborator. There may be more than one application submitted by each organisation.
The funding period is 18 months.
Deadline: 25th August 2022.
