The National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) supports basic research that increases understanding of biological processes and lays the foundation for advances in disease diagnosis, treatment and prevention. NIGMS-funded scientists investigate how living systems work at a range of levels, from molecules and cells to tissues, whole organisms and populations. The Institute also supports research in certain clinical areas, primarily those that affect multiple organ systems. To assure the vitality and continued productivity of the research enterprise, NIGMS provides leadership in training the next generation of scientists, in enhancing the diversity of the scientific workforce, and in developing research capacities throughout the country. In order to achieve these goals, research grant applications recommended for approval by the National Advisory General Medical Sciences (NAGMS) Council are considered for funding using the following criteria:
The NAGMS Council has recommended that the Institute scientific staff take additional factors into account in making funding decisions.
