Strengthening public understanding and appreciation of science is a key NIGMS goal. As part of its efforts, the Institute publishes free science education materials on a range of topics.
We encourage you to consider the environment and use our materials in their electronic forms. If you require printed versions, you may order a single copy of most publications. If you are an educator, you may order larger quantities.
