Science of Science Policy Approach to Analyzing and Innovating the Biomedical Research Enterprise (SCISIPBIO)

This program is jointly supported by NIGMS and the Science of Science: Discovery, Communication, and Impact (SoS:DCI) program in the Directorate for Social, Behavioral and Economic Sciences (SBE) at the National Science Foundation (NSF).

The SCISIPBIO program supports research that advances the scientific basis of science and innovation policy, with a focus on the biomedical sciences. This partnership will result in a portfolio of high-quality research to provide scientific analysis of important aspects of the biomedical research enterprise and efforts to foster a diverse, innovative, productive, and efficient scientific workforce, from which future scientific leaders will emerge.

NIGMS has published a Notice of Special Interest (NOT-GM-21-033​) to inform applicants of potential topic areas to address the impacts of structural racism and discrimination on biomedical career progression and the biomedical research enterprise.

Applications, which are reviewed by a joint NSF/NIGMS panel, are accepted twice a year. For details, see
NSF Program Solicitation 19-547 and NIH Guide Notice GM-19-011. Please note that applications should be submitted to NSF. For more information, please contact Dr. Kenneth Gibbs​.
