Bio:
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.
General Information:

Strengthening public understanding and appreciation of science is a key NIGMS goal. As part of its efforts, the Institute publishes free science education materials on a range of topics.

We encourage you to consider the environment and use our materials in their electronic forms. If you require printed versions, you may order a single copy of most publications. If you are an educator, you may order larger quantities.
