Does your application fit the scientific mission of NIGMS?

Prospective applicants frequently ask us whether their application ideas fit within our mission. NIGMS supports basic research that increases our understanding of biological processes and lays the foundation for advances in disease diagnosis, treatment, and prevention. We also support research in some specific clinical areas that affect multiple organ systems, including anesthesia, sepsis, wound healing, and trauma. In addition, we’re committed to training the next generation of scientists, enhancing the diversity of the scientific workforce, and developing research capacity throughout the country. Not all applications for fundamental biomedical research projects will ultimately be assigned to NIGMS.  Other NIH institutes and centers (ICs) also have strong commitments to basic research that underlie an understanding of their own particular organ systems, diseases, or treatments. Each NIH IC is different and supports distinct research areas, so it’s wise to seek advice from the program where your science best fits. Before submitting an application to NIGMS, we strongly recommend that you contact the program director whose portfolio most closely matches your area of research. A project’s fit within NIGMS’ mission is often based on the scientific goal of the studies. For example, if a proposed project utilizes a cell type (e.g., cardiac muscle cells or neurons) as a model to study a basic mechanism such as ion fluxes, it might be appropri...

Anyone have any advice for treating hiccups during endoscopy (assume patient is adequately sedated with propofol). It happens infrequently and typically resolves within a few minutes- but very annoying when it occurs during a critical part of a case!

A 72-year-old male cardiac transplant patient presented after sustaining facial and extremity trauma caused by a pit bull dog attack. The case was further complicated by duration of the surgery, bleeding, infection risk, intraoperative hypothermia, immunosuppression, and the risk of sepsis. His anesthetic management required careful coordination with his transplant team. We also sought the expertise of the in-house pharmacist to obtain the appropriate administration strategies for the patient ’s immunosuppressants.

Primary postpartum haemorrhage (PPH) is a major cause of morbidity and the leading cause of direct maternal death worldwide,[1] with uterine atony accounting for approximately 70% of all cases.[2] Oxytocin is the most commonly used uterotonic in the developed world, with recent Cochrane reviews showing that it is effective at treating PPH.[3,4] However, failure of PPH prophylaxis with oxytocin, as shown by the need for a rescue uterotonic, has been demonstrated to be as high as 13% in women having an elective caesarean delivery (CD).
