Part 2. Section I. Funding Opportunity Description

Specific Research Objectives and Scope

National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS)
NIGMS is interested in supporting research that brings together mathematicians, computer scientists, engineers, and systems-level methodologists with a broad range of content area experts in the biological and social and behavioral sciences to develop and test new or innovative theories or computational, mathematical, engineering, or statistical models of collective behavior.

Specific areas of interest would include but are not limited to:

  • Developing and testing innovative multi-scale, complex systems approaches to understanding basic biobehavioral phenomena and processes of relevance to health. How phenomena and processes at the individual and population level influence phenomena and processes at the biological level, and vice versa, are of particular interest.
  • Improving the variety, quality, and applicability of computational, mathematical, engineering, and statistical approaches and tools for modeling individual and collective behavior.
