In February 2018, the Biosciences Initiative announced a Request for Applications (RFA) for Scientific Synergy, Scientific Research and Exploratory Funding Opportunities. Biosciences faculty from across the University of Michigan Ann Arbor campus applied for this exciting opportunity. All proposals were evaluated through three levels of independent scoring, based on the criteria described in the RFA. On October 29, 2018 the Biosciences Initiative publicly announced nine grant awards, totaling up to $45 million.
