Topic of Interest

The retreat format is designed to group faculty that can contribute expertise towards addressing a researchable question/societal problem. Please select a "researchable area" of interest from the topics below (or select other); your disciplinary expertise likely could help teams working in several areas. You may select a secondary area of interest following this first question--and you will not be "locked into" this selection during the retreat.

[Topic areas need not be limited to those listed; funding-eligible topics for the grant program will not be administratively pre-defined.  Submissions in response to the RFA, however, must be designed to position a research team to submit a highly competitive extramural funding application immediately following the completion of their proposed work.]

* System Science Area of Interest

Please indicate 'other' topic of interest or secondary area of interest from those listed above.
