Career Development Assistance
> Genetics and Developmental Biology Research and Research Training
The Division of Genetics and Developmental Biology supports studies directed toward gaining a better understanding of the fundamental mechanisms of inheritance and development. These studies underlie the more targeted research projects supported by other components of the National Institutes of Health. Most of the projects supported by the division make use of non-human model systems. It is expected that the results of these studies will lead to the eventual diagnosis, prevention, therapy, and cure of human genetic and developmental disorders. Among the areas under active investigation are cell growth and differentiation; chromosome organization and mechanics; control of gene expression; control of the cell cycle; developmental genetics and cell biology; extra chromosomal inheritance; mechanisms of mutagenesis; neurogenetics and the genetics of behavior; population genetics, evolution, and the genetics of complex traits; the replication, recombination, and repair of genes; and the genetics of complex systems.
