Overview:

The Infrastructure Innovation for Biological Research Program (Innovation) supports research to design novel or greatly improved research tools and methods that advance contemporary biology in any research area supported by the Directorate forBiological Sciences at NSF. The Innovation Program focuses on research infrastructure that is broadly applicable to researchers in three programmatic areas: Bioinformatics, Instrumentation, and Research Methods. Infrastructure supported by this program is expected to advance biological understanding by improving scientists’ abilities to manipulate, control, analyze, or measure critical aspects of biological systems, which can be essential for addressing important fundamental research questions.

Proposals submitted to these programmatic areas can do one of three things to advance or transform research in biology:

  • Develop novel infrastructure,
  • Significantly redesign existing infrastructure, or
  • Adapt existing infrastructure in novel ways.

Projects are expected to have a significant application to one or more biological science questions and have the potential to be used by a community of researchers beyond a single research team. Please refer to the descriptions of individual programmatic areas for detailed guidance on what is supported through this solicitation (see links below).
