Amendment 15: New Opportunity: E.11 Consortium in Biological Sciences

E.11 Consortium in Biological Sciences solicits proposals from a consortium in biological sciences to enable and/or carry out research investigations addressing NASA’s established space-relevant science interests in human health, animal, and plant sciences.

Proposals in response to this program element may be for ground-based research investigations, for collaborations that will promote research efforts to obtain funding from NASA or other organizations including other Federal agencies, and/or for other activities that advance NASA’s established science interests in space-relevant human health, animal, and plant sciences. A single award will be made of up to $2.5M total cost and with a period of performance of up to 5 years. This program element requires an Inclusion Plan and proposals will be evaluated using dual anonymous peer review.

The consortium shall consist of at least one Space Grant Consortia member. NASA shall establish the consortium in a State or region that does not currently host a NASA facility.

ROSES-2024 Amendment 15 presents a new program element in ROSES-2024: E.11 Consortium in Biological Sciences. A pre-proposer’s town hall for potential proposers to this program element will be held virtually on May 29th, 2024, at 3:00PM (ET). Details of this virtual meeting will be posted on the NSPIRES page for this program element under “Other Documents” no later than May 22, 2024. Notices of Intent are required and must be submitted by June 17, 2024; the due date for proposals is July 17, 2024.

On or about May 17, 2024, this Amendment to the NASA Research Announcement "Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) 2024" (NNH24ZDA001N) will be posted on the NASA research opportunity homepage at
