2009 NIH Regional Seminars Offer Unparalleled Learning & Networking Opportunity


Held twice a year, the NIH Regional Seminars provide you with an opportunity to meet approximately 25 NIH policy officials, grants management and program staff representing various Institutes and/or Centers, as well as representatives from the Office for Human Research Protections, Office of Research Integrity, Loan Repayment Program (LRP), the SBIR/STTR program, and more. For two days, experts in NIH grants policy and process share a broad array of expertise and insight at an event you won’t find anywhere else – without coming to the NIH campus, of course! In addition, you’ll receive the most current information on submitting an application electronically and how to effectively utilize the eRA Commons. You can also sign up for the optional eRA Computer Workshops for hands-on training by eRA experts.

Investigators and administrators will learn everything from the basics to the latest changes in the NIH Grants Process. Post docs and graduate students can learn about NIH programs (including the Loan Repayment Program) and receive tips and resources directly from NIH. Network with others in your field along with NIH and HHS experts. We look forward to seeing you!
