Review Process

Nominations will be reviewed by a 3-5-member panel selected by the Director of the Morgridge Metabolism Theme. Each application will be reviewed based on innovation, relevance to ongoing work within the broader metabolism community, and overall potential.

Research topics may include, but are not limited to:

  • The development of a new tool or reagent for monitoring/dissecting metabolic processes.
  • The application of an existing chemistry-related technology for exploring a new cellular/organismal metabolic process.
  • Elucidation of the chemical principles underlying an established metabolic phenomenon.
  • Screening of chemical libraries for effects on metabolic processes; synthesis/derivatization of such therapeutic compounds and testing of their efficacy on a metabolic process.

Questions about the review process should be directed to
