23 Questions

Darpa's 23 mathematical challenges in modern scientific efforts, with a distinct emphasis on computational biology.

Larry Abbott's 23 questions in computational neuroscience.

23 is a reference to the father of all such lists, Hilbert's 23 problems posed to the International Congress of Mathematicians in 1900; these problems shaped much of 20th century mathematics, and some remain unresolved to this day.
