NSF RFP for Biosensing


TITLE:  Biosensing
NSF PD 13-7909

URL:  http://www.nsf.gov/funding/pgm_summ.jsp?pims_id=503353

DUE:  15 August  2013 – 17 September  2013

SCOPE:  The Biosensing Program supports fundamental research in engineering areas related to:

  • Novel sensitive, discriminative, low cost, and easy to operate biosensing systems
  • Innovative ideas in the development of novel biorecognition strategies
  • Multifunctional nanomaterials and interfaces with predefined physical, chemical or biological characteristics for biosensing applications
  • Fundamental study of bio-macromolecules confinement and orientation at the micro- and nano-interfaces for biosensing applications
  • Molecular sensors capable of monitoring biological structures interaction (protein-protein interactions, cell-to-cell talk, interkingdom signaling, etc.)

Proposals outside of these specific interest areas are welcome.  In particular, the Interfacial Processing and Thermodynamics Program and the Biosensing Program may jointly support novel projects related to surface functionalization at the molecular level.
