The Chan Zuckerberg Initiative (CZI) seeks applications for projects that aim to use and gain insights into health and disease from existing single cell datasets to help accelerate progress toward challenges associated with the compilation and exploration of large atlas-scale data. Given the growth of single-cell biology and the rapid increase in available data, CZI is looking to support projects that will advance the fields of single-cell biology and data science.
Topics that are likely to be financied:
- Meta-analysys of single-cell datasets
- Develop scalable and robust tools and methods for data analysis problems in spatial transcriptomics.
- Increase the robustness and performance of tools.
- Develop benchmarking frameworks, tasks and infraestructures that enable comparisons among a class of tools and methods to simulate future development.
- Improve existing tools.

Applications may be submitted by domestic and foreign nonprofit organizations including public and private institutions, such as colleges, universities, hospitals, laboratories, units of state and local government, and eligible agencies of the federal government. For profit organizations are not eligible to receive funding but may be involved in projects as a collaborator. All grants will be awarded to institutions, not individuals.
Each application must have a minimum of one PI (Coordinating PI), but may designate up to three total PIs (one Coordinating PI and up to two Co-PIs). Principal Investigators may serve as Coordinating Principal Investigator on multiple applications provided that the proposed scope of work for all applications is non-overlapping.
Principal Investigators may serve as Co-PI on multiple applications provided that the proposed scope of work for all applications is non-overlapping. PIs/Co-PIs on one application may be employed at the same or different institutions.
The applicant must first set up an account in the CZI online grants portal at Chan Zuckerberg website.
