NIGMS Funding Policies
The division supports a broad spectrum of research aimed at obtaining a molecular-level understanding of biological processes and approaches to their control. Research funded takes a multifaceted approach to problems in pharmacology, physiology, biochemistry, and biological chemistry that are very fundamental in nature. NIGMS supports a variety of research opportunities including fellowships, career awards, research grants, technology development awards, and small business grants.
The division has two components: the Pharmacological and Physiological Sciences Branch and the Biochemistry and Bio-related Chemistry Branch. For a list of all staff and links to their biographical sketches, see the
Division Staff Contacts page. Research areas supported by both branches and contact names are listed on the
Contacts by Research Area page. Note that some research related to this division’s areas falls within the mission of other institutes and centers at NIH; for this reason, advance contact with staff is always recommended.
