Meet Face-to-Face & Talk with Experts from NIH & HHS in 2017

Can you relate to this?

When I started working with NIH grants, I was told it would take at least two years to feel confident with my knowledge of the NIH process and policies, but I still wouldn’t know everything. I kept a list of NIH acronyms next to my computer and a hard copy of the NIH Grants Policy Statement on my desk at all times!

…or this?

I only knew what NIH was through the perspective of my advisor and the one institute that supported our lab. Who knew there was so much to learn about different NIH funding opportunities and programs, and requirements for NIH applications and managing my award? It’s great to have an opportunity to learn directly from so many different NIH & HHS experts, all in one place.

If so, read on! The NIH Regional Seminar on Program Funding & Grants Administration provides an unparalleled opportunity for you to gain a better perspective of NIH policies and programs, network with peers, gather helpful NIH contacts and return to your office or lab with useful information, resources and tools to assist in obtaining and managing NIH awards.

Registration is now open for the following 2017 NIH Regional Seminar Locations:

In a nutshell, here is why you should plan on attending and reserve your seat today!

  • Who attends? Over 600 new investigators, research administrators, grant writers and others working with NIH grants and contracts will be in attendance from almost every state and numerous countries around the globe. The seminar is designed for those new to working with NIH grants. (This means session questions and discussions from those with roles similar to yours.)
  • Who presents?
