Join us the third Tuesday of each month from 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM Eastern Time for the Division of Biological Infrastructure’s (DBI) Virtual Office Hours.

Representatives from across the division will be available to discuss specific programs and funding opportunities. There will then be an open question and answer period – questions can be on any NSF or DBI topic. Join us remotely and bring your questions!
