To gain a deeper mechanistic understanding of biological systems, the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative’s Imaging program aims to visualize and measure them across biological scales and in their biological context. CZI invites applications for four-year projects to drive development of imaging technology focused on obtaining cellular resolution readouts within complex living organisms. This grant program will advance the field of deep tissue imaging, which aims to obtain cellular resolution in complex tissue and through skin and bone.
To accelerate recent innovations in deep tissue imaging technology development, this Phase 2 RFA is open to all applicants and is not limited to Deep Tissue Imaging Phase 1 pilot projects or investigators. The Phase 2 RFA is a two-step application process. We invite letters of intent (LOI) in which applicants will provide a short proposal detailing the current state of a deep tissue imaging technology and how their project will advance this technology. A subset of the LOI applicants will be invited to submit a full application for four-year projects.
