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, imaging principles for molecules and cells, modeling of biological systems, bioinformatics and computer science, statistics and data management, instrumentation, chips and microarrays, biosensors, and biomaterials. Biological context is important in bioengineering, and a central premise in organization of this IRG is the need for effective review of bioengineering and technology development in early stages before specific practical uses are proven.
Research grants (R01, R21, R15, etc.), Program Project and Center Grants (P01, P41 etc.), and Cooperative Agreements (U01, U54 etc.) are reviewed in the BST IRG.
