Most NSF programs in biology are funded through the Directorate for Biological Sciences. However, activities with biological relevance are supported by virtually all parts of the Foundation: examples include Biological Oceanography, in the Directorate for Geosciences; Bioengineering and Environmental Systems, in the Directorate for Engineering; and Physical Anthropology, in the Directorate for Social, Behavioral and Economic Sciences. Note that NSF does not normally support bioscience research with disease-related goals, including work on the etiology, diagnosis or treatment of physical or mental disease, abnormality, or malfunction in human beings or animals.
