Description: I am PI for this major research grant that supports 12 PIs at 8 institutions to work on the discovery,
characterization and control of cellular biological clocks. I assembled experts in
Cell Cycle (Haase-Duke), Metabolic Cycle (Wingreen & Botstein - Princeton), Circadian Rhythms(Hogenesch - Penn), Gene pulsing
(Elowitz -Cal Tech) and the root clock (Benfey - Duke), together with a collection of expert modelers, for the project.
I go to DARPA 4 times a year to talk to the PM. We also file quarterly reports, have monthly phone reports and 2 meetings a year..
