CZI Imaging Programme – Napari Plugin Foundations Grants

Closing Date: –

This Chan Zuckerberg Initiative offers support to improve the quality of one or more existing napari plugins through improvements to documentation, user support, usability, reliability and establishing foundational plugins for cell biology analyses.

The Chan Zuckerberg Initiative (CZI) Imaging Programme seeks to give biologists access to reproducible quantitative image analysis.

As part of the programme, the Napari Plugin Foundations Grants Call for Proposals aims to support software development projects for the napari image analysis platform – a community-built, open source and interactive tool for Python designed for browsing, annotating and analysing large multi-dimesional images.

two types of grants will be considered in the scope od the Call according to the level of maturity of the plugin:

  • Quality Improvement Grants: to improve the quality of one or more existing open source napari plugins. Priority will be given to plugins that have strong potential for increased impact through quality improvements such as documentation, user support, usability, and reliability. Plugins supported by quality improvement grants must be available on the napari hub and source code on a public repository prior to the final grant submission date of June 1, 2022.
  • Cell Biology Grants: to convert existing open source tools, methods, or processing steps that support common cell biology workflows into one or more napari plugins. Priority will be given to plugins that provide image analysis, processing, and quantification solutions that are currently lacking in the napari plugin ecosystem through the napari hub.
