2016 Call for Proposals

The National Science Foundation Industry-University Cooperative Research Center, the Center for Arthropod Management Technologies (CAMTech) announces a call for proposals for research projects to begin January 1, 2017.



Proposals should be for pre-competitive research (i.e. not leading to patentable information) related to arthropod or nematode management. The use of economically relevant organisms is encouraged. Click article title for more information.

Three representatives with diverse backgrounds (Chemistry, Engineering, Agriculture) from the agricultural industry sector will be presenting and answering questions, 1- 3 pm on Wednesday, October 14 in the Campanile Room, MU. See flier for full details. This event is open to all but provides a particularly good opportunity for graduate students and postdocs to gain insight into careers within the commercial sector. Feel free to come and go during the session as your schedule allows.


On the basis that economic losses resulting from arthropod-mediated damage and disease are second only to losses resulting from natural disasters, we are working to streamline the efforts of industry and academia toward management of arthropod pests through a unique center: We partnered with NSF and industry for formal establishment in 2013 of a  National Science Foundation Industry / University Cooperative Research Center (I/UCRC), the Center for Arthropod Management Technologies.

Benefits of Membership

• Leveraged investment in strategic research for competitive advantage

• Board membership to influence research priorities with a diverse research team

• First rights to developments

• Pipeline to outstanding and well trained personnel
