NASA’s Astrobiology Program invites scientists at US Institutions to apply for a Biosignatures IDEAS lab, a hybrid workshop to develop new and innovative grant proposals through real-time peer review. The workshop will include several virtual pre-meetings, three days of in-person sessions and three full-day virtual sessions. We expect to fund a few of the proposals developed by this process through the Exobiology program. For more information, and to apply for this workshop, please visit:
