Genetics and Developmental Biology Research and Research Training

December 19, 2018


The Division of Genetics and Developmental Biology supports studies directed toward gaining a better understanding of the fundamental mechanisms of inheritance and development. The results of these studies form the foundation for advances in diagnosing, preventing, treating and curing human genetic and developmental disorders. Most of the projects supported by the division make use of model organisms, which speed advances in understanding human biological processes.

The division has two components: the Genetic Mechanisms Branch and the Developmental and Cellular Processes Branch.
