Description: This initiative calls for fundamentally new approaches in chemistry to drive new directions in biotechnology, an important Industry of the Future (IotF). Collaborative high risk/high reward projects are sought; the research must involve innovative chemistry. A multi-year campaign is envisioned (contingent on availability of funding), targeting broad annual themes.This year’s solicitation calls for synergistic scientific partnerships grounded in the principles of synthetic, physical organic and molecular recognition chemistry creatingnovel chemical biology tools to drive innovations in biotechnology. The focus is on the development and deployment of fundamentally new techniques to modify the structure, function and/or fate of proteins interacting with small molecules for important applications in biotechnology.
