Advanced Light-Sheet Microscopy Opportunity

The Arnold and Mabel Beckman Foundation is requesting proposals for a new program in Advanced Light-Sheet Microscopy. Please see the program announcement and requirements attached. The foundation is planning to make several awards in this program for $1.2M each. Pre-proposals are due March 6, 2020.

Program Objectives

Proposals should be centered around core biological problems and a research program that is enabled by the dynamic, 3D, and long-term imaging capabilities of advanced light-sheet microscopy. Proposals shall include one-page descriptions of up to 3 distinct research project(s) to which the light-sheet capability will be applied that will represent significant advances within this larger research program. Additional consideration will be given to proposals that include other imaging, sensing, or analysis technologies as an integral part of one or more of the proposed research project(s).
