NIGMS provides institutions the resources to support and train underrepresented, STEM-oriented students, who upon completion of their training are likely to successfully complete a Ph.D. program in a biomedical science field relevant to the NIH. Biomedical research is defined as scientific investigations in the biological, physical, chemical, computational, engineering, mathematical sciences, and other relevant disciplines. NIGMS supports basic research that increases understanding of biological processes and lays the foundation for disease diagnosis, treatment and prevention. An overview of areas that fit within the NIGMS priorities in basic research can be found on the NIGMS website.
