The Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation funding opportunity

23 May 2019 8:02 AM | Anonymous

The Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation recently announced a nine-year, $140M effort – Symbiosis in Aquatic Systems Initiative - focused on advancing knowledge of how symbiotic associations function and participate in ecology and evolution. The initiative is interested in symbioses where at least one partner is a microbe and where the symbiosis takes place in a marine or freshwater environment. The initiative currently has an open call for investigator awards with pre-applications due June 3, 2019. Two additional funding opportunities will be announced later in 2019. The first will focus on advancing experimental model systems in aquatic symbiosis. The second, in partnership with the Simons Foundation, will be centered on the origin of the eukaryotic cell.
