The Senate of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) established the Priority Programme “Next Generation Optogenetics: Tool Development and Application” (SPP 1926). The programme is designed to run for six years. The present call invites proposals for the second three-year funding period.
Optogenetic methods and tools revolutionised research in neuroscience and cell biology, as they elegantly enable light-controlled manipulation of cellular functions. To explore new aspects in areas ranging from microbial cell biology to in vivo physiology, this Priority Programme aims to take optogenetic methods to the next level.
- Proposals must be written in English and submitted to the DFG by 5 December 2018.
- Further information regarding the programme is available on the DFG website.
