The Chan Zuckerberg Initiative (CZI) Vision is to build the future of science by advancing research and developing technologies to observe, measure, and analyze any biological process within the human body - across spatial scales and in real time.

In addition, given the growth of single-cell biology and the rapid increase in available data, the new Data Insights Cycle 2 FRA will support projects to advance the fields of single-cell biology and data science. CZI seeks applications for projects that aim to use and gain insights into health and disease from existing single-cell datasets to help accelerate progress toward challenges associated with the compilation and exploration of large atlas-scale data. We encourage applications in rapidly expanding areas such as:

  • Projects that aim to develop scalable and robust tools and methods for data analysis problems in spatial transcriptomic;
  • Projects that use meta-analysis and data integration to study questions such as the heterogeneity of healthy tissues and changes in tissues during disease states; and
  • Projects that aim to increase the robustness and performance of tools of broad interest and will enable new domains of utility for single-cell data.

Grants will be awarded at two levels:

Focused Projects: $200,000 USD (191.259,43€) total costs (inclusive of up to 15 percent indirect costs) for grants that primarily support the effort of one to two full-time employees (FTEs) working on a given project.

Expanded Projects: $400,000 USD (382.445,75€) total costs (inclusive of up to 15 percent indirect costs) for networked grants that will require the participation of two to four FTEs.

Funding is not intended to support experimental data generation and Indirect costs cannot exceed 15 percent of direct costs for any grant proposal. 

Award period and start date: Proposed projects should be 18 months; expected start date for awards in Cycle 2 is May 1, 2023.


Applications can be submitted by US and non-US non-profit organisations, public and private institutions (eg colleges, universities, research institutes, hospitals and laboratories), units of state and local government, and eligible agencies of the federal government.

Applications are welcome from any country.

Each application must have a minimum of one PI (Coordinating PI), but may designate up to three total PIs (one Coordinating PI and up to two Co-PIs).

For-profit organisations are not eligible to receive funding but may be involved in projects  as a collaborator.
