NIH GUIDE, Volume 23, Number 35, October 7, 1994



  Grants Administration/Policy+ 

National Institute of General Medical Sciences

On October 7, 1994, the staff of the National Institute of General

Medical Sciences (NIGMS) moves to the new William H. Natcher Building

on the main NIH campus.  The mailing address is:

(Name of staff member)


45 Center Drive MSC 6200

Bethesda, MD  20892-6200

Telephone and FAX numbers are changing as well.  Listed below are the

new telephone numbers for key NIGMS staff members.  For the telephone

number of an NIGMS staff member who is not included on this list, call

the person's old number (a recording will give the new number for

several weeks) or call the NIGMS Office of Research Reports at (301)


The following list also reflects the NIGMS' reorganization, effective

October 1, 1994.  The reorganization was undertaken to enhance the

NIGMS' effectiveness and efficiency in supporting basic biomedical

research and research training, as well as to align NIGMS'

organizational structure and position titles with those of other NIH

institutes.  The most significant change is the rearrangement of four

program branches--Cellular and Molecular Basis of Disease, Genetics,

Biophysics and Physiological Sciences, and Pharmacology and Biorelated

Chemistry--into three divisions:  Cell Biology and Biophysics; Genetics

and Developmental Biology; and Pharmacology, Physiology, and Biological

Chemistry.  In addition, the recently established Minority

Opportunities in Research Programs Branch becomes the Division of

Minority Opportunities in Research.  The reorganization is not intended

to reflect changes in NIGMS support for specific areas of science; in

fact, the grant portfolios managed by individual program administrators

will remain essentially the same.  For additional information on the

reorganization, contact the NIGMS Office of Research Reports at the

above telephone number.
