Nebraska researchers for whom the National Science Foundation is a primary funding target are encouraged to attend an upcoming seminar about the agency’s funding opportunities.
As the sole federal agency dedicated to investing in fundamental science and engineering, NSF supports almost 24 percent of basic research conducted at U.S. institutions of higher education.
“Opportunities at the NSF” is 9-10 a.m. Friday, April 27, in Room 169, Ken Morrison Life Sciences Research Center, 4240 Fair St. To register for the seminar, click here.
Elebeoba “Chi-Chi” May, program director for systems and synthetic biology in NSF’s Division of Molecular and Cellular Biosciences, will discuss program opportunities within the Directorate for Biological Sciences and provide an overview of foundation-wide funding mechanisms.
A limited number of one-on-one consultations with May also are available. These consultations are available on a first-come, first-served basis and should focus on current or potential biological sciences projects. Consultations can be requested during the registration process.
In addition to her NSF role, May holds an academic appointment in biomedical engineering at the University of Houston and is affiliated with the Houston Methodist Research Institute. She earned her doctorate in computer engineering from North Carolina State University.
