The Division of Integrative Organismal Systems (IOS) Core Programs support research aimed at understanding why organisms are structured the way they are and function as they do. Proposals are welcomed in all of the core scientific program areas supported by the Division of Integrative Organismal Systems (IOS). Areas of inquiry include, but are not limited to:

  • Developmental biology and the evolution of developmental processes,
  • Nervous system development, structure, modification, function, and evolution;
  • Biomechanics and functional morphology,
  • Physiological processes, symbioses and microbial interactions,
  • Interactions of organisms with biotic and abiotic environments,
  • Plant and animal genomics, and
  • Animal behavior.

Proposals should focus on organisms as a fundamental unit of biological organization. Principal Investigators are encouraged to apply systems approaches that will lead to conceptual and theoretical insights and predictions about emergent organismal properties.
