Research Approach

In FY 2014, five pilot projects were initiated at separate DOE national laboratories to develop in situ, dynamic, and nondestructive approaches to multifunctional imaging, quantitative flux measurements, and multiscale integrative analysis of biological systems. These projects will serve as a prelude to initiating a longer-term technology development program. BER intends to follow up this initial effort at the national laboratories with a similar funding opportunity announcement (FOA) to the academic community, pending availability of funds, in FY 2015.
