MnDRIVE Environment invites proposals from University of Minnesota faculty for Industrial Partnership Bioremediation Seed Grants; deadline is June 20, 2019. The goal of the seed grant program is to improve bioremediation/biodegradation strategies and their industrial applications through improved understanding, augmentation, or alteration of microorganisms or microbial communities. Faculty research may include basic and applied components, though preference will be given to translational research using microorganisms in environmental cleanup. Only new projects will be considered and seed grant funds may not be used to support existing studies. Applications should emphasize relevance to Minnesota’s industry and environment.
