NIGMS has four standing study sections that manage the review of all application to NIGMS’ institutional training NOFOs. Reviewers on the panels are appointed for 2- to 6-year terms and meet three times a year to review applications.
TWD-B study sections routinely review basic biomedical and medical sciences
predoctoral T32 programs. While there is considerable overlap in expertise between the two panels, applications are typically divided to accommodate conflicts and to balance workload. When necessary, ad hoc reviewers may be added to the panels to bolster expertise and/or manage a larger than usual number of applications. Post-doctoral T32 programs are reviewed by a separate special emphasis panel (SEP) in the Branch.

TWD-D study sections manage the review of applications for a broader range of training programs:
Bridges to the Baccalaureate (T34),
Bridges to the Doctorate (T32),
IMSD (T32), and
IRACDA (K12). Again, applications are typically divided between the two panels to accommodate conflicts and to balance workload.
