SMBE is now calling for proposals for meetings and actions to be held between Jan 2023 and Dec 31st 2023. Funds will be awarded on a competitive basis to members of the molecular evolution research community to run workshops/meetings on an important, focused, and timely topic of their choice. The number of awards will depend on the quality of proposals and total cost.

The deadline for submission of proposals is September 30th 2022.
