IRG Summary

The Bioengineering Sciences and Technologies (BST) IRG reviews grant applications that focus on fundamental aspects of bioengineering and technology development in the following areas: gene and drug delivery systems, nanotechnology, high-throughput screening, modeling of biological systems, bioinformatics and computer science, data management, instrumentation, chips and microarrays, point-of-care devices, biosensors, biomaterials, and bioactive surfaces. Biological context is important in bioengineering, and a central premise in the organization of this IRG is the need for effective review of bioengineering and technology development in early stages before specific practical uses are proven.
