Forbes receives NSF grant

CBS Dean Valery Forbes recently received an NSF grant under the "Understanding the Rules of Life" program. It is a collaborative grant with UMASS Medical School, University of Nevada Las Vegas, UMN, and the Broad Institute. The title of the project is "Epigenetic pathways to regulate homeostatic resilience: Model-based discovery of rules across diverse mammals." The project started September 1, 2020 and will go for five years.
