NIGMS is organized into divisions and a center that support research and research training in basic biomedical science fields. One division has the specific mission of increasing the number of underrepresented minority biomedical and behavioral scientists. The key areas in which these divisions fund research are listed below. Division of Cell Biology and Biophysics: analytical and separation techniques; biomedical instrumentation; cell organization, motility, and division; lipid biochemistry; membrane structure and function; molecular biophysics; spectroscopic techniques; structural biology; and structural genomics. Division of Genetics and Developmental Biology: cell growth and differentiation; chromosome organization and mechanics; control of gene expression; control of the cell cycle; developmental genetics; extrachromosomal inheritance; mechanisms of mutagenesis; neurogenetics and the genetics of behavior; population genetics, evolution, and the genetics of complex traits; protein synthesis; replication, recombination, and repair of genes; and RNA processing and transcription. Division of Pharmacology, Physiology, and Biological Chemistry: anesthesiology; biochemistry; bioenergetics; bio-organic and bio-inorganic chemistry; biotechnology; glycoconjugates and glycobiology; medicinal chemistry; molecular immunobiology; pharmacogenetics; pharmacology and clinical pharmacology; physiology; synthetic chemistry; trauma and burn injury; and wound healing. Division of Minority Opportunities in Research: Minority Access to Research Careers Branch - supports research training at the undergraduate, graduate, and faculty levels; Minority Biomedical Research Support Branch - funds faculty-initiated research projects and student development grants at educational institutions with significant enrollments of underrepresented minority students. These grants help strengthen the institutions' biomedical research capabilities and develop the research competitiveness of the participating faculty. Center for Bioinformatics and Computational Biology: analysis of complex biological systems, biomedical software development, cell and molecular modeling and simulation, computational genomics, database design and enhancement, and high-throughput data analysis.
