Please Note: Consortium for Plant Biotechnology Research (CPBR) submissions

Pre-proposals for the Consortium for Plant Biotechnology Research (CPBR) were due last week on December 1. Any PI’s who may have submitted a pre-proposal to this call without routing through WISPER are urged to contact Becky Bound in the CALS Research Division (, 265-8443). There are a number of unique and complicated terms and processes to address with these submissions, and we hope to have the opportunity to discuss them as early in the process as possible.

Please note that it is CALS’ policy that all pre-proposals be routed for approval via WISPER prior to submission to the sponsor. If there are any questions about this policy or the routing process, please don’t hesitate to contact your primary contact on the CALS pre-award team.
