NIH Reorganization Announced for General Medical Sciences
Published on: January 05, 2012
Two new divisions have been established within the National Institutes of General Medical Sciences (NGMS) at the National Institutes of Health, agency officials announced Wednesday.
The general medical sciences institute supports basic research and research training. Under the reorganization, there will be a Division of Training, Workforce Development and Diversity and a Division of Biomedical Technology, Bioinformatics and Computational Biology.
The new divisions also will be home to programs transferred from the former National Center for Research Resources (NCRR). The overall amount of funding will not change and most grants will be administered by the same NIH staff members, NIH officials said.
