Objectives
To promote the progress of the biological sciences and thereby strengthen the Nation's scientific enterprise; to increase scientific knowledge and enhance understanding of major problems confronting the Nation. Most of the research supported is basic in character. The program includes support of research project grants in the following disciplines: molecular and cellular biosciences; integrative organismal biology; environmental biology; and biological infrastructure. Support is also provided for the purchase of multi-user scientific equipment and instrument development, and for research workshops, symposia, and conferences. In addition, awards are made to support graduate student research across biological sciences, postdoctoral fellowships in research, and postdoctoral fellowships to scientists of groups under-represented in all areas of research supported by the biological sciences.
