DAY 2: Wed July 10
1:00 - 2:00

Securing funding is a critical component of the research process. Being a successful fundraiser means knowing your funding entities and the program officers who manage grant-making opportunities. Join us for a lunchtime panel featuring program officers from funding organizations from around the world who currently have grant-making programs focused on synthetic biology. They will describe their specific funding interests and the process for applying for support. You will have an opportunity to ask them direct questions.
