Proposals to the Biological Control program (DARPA-BAA-16-17) are due April 29, 2016. The program seeks to build the foundations for multiscale control of biological systems.
The Biological Control program seeks to support a wide range of potential Department of Defense (DoD) applications by enhancing understanding of the basic processes associated with biological network interactions, communication, and control. Leveraging technologies developed under this program would enable construction of systems that seek out and mitigate chemical and biological threats; lead to the development of novel biomaterials that increase the resilience of Navy ships and other DoD systems to biofouling; and support military readiness by synthesizing new pharmaceuticals to treat emerging diseases.
