On Friday, Sept. 14, General Registration Rates end for this valuable and unique learning opportunity, designed for those new to working with the NIH grants process. If you are interested in attending the Fall NIH Regional Seminar in San Francisco, CA (Oct. 17-19) and have not registered yet, then now is the time!
We could say it over and over, but check it out for yourself…
- Over 700 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. (This means session questions and discussions from those with roles similar to yours.)
- Over 65 presenters including NIH officials representing Program, Grants Management, Review, and the OER Policy office. HHS experts from OHRP, OIG & ORI. (See the online Faculty Page for details).
- Over 14 NIH Institute and Centers represented by faculty available for smaller, more personal discussion opportunities in our “1:1 Meet the Experts” chats and/or at our NIH exhibits. Sign up in advance to meet with specific faculty members during the 2-day seminar in 15 minute time slots. Past attendees repeatedly tell us how valuable these discussions were for them.
- Over 45 different topics during the 2-day seminar within 3 unique tracks based on roles: Administrators, Investigators, and All Interests (specialty topics). This seminar provides a comprehensive program focusing on the NIH grants process and related policies, including such topics as NIH grant fundamentals, compliance, peer review, grant writing guidance, research integrity, pre-award and post-award issues for administrators and investigators, animal and human subject research, foreign collaborations, and how to interact electronically with NIH. View the agenda and list of session descriptions for more details.
- Over-the-top opportunities to learn even more during the Optional Pre-Seminar Workshops on topics such as electronic Research Administration (eRA), Human Subject Research Protections (collaboration between OHRP & NIH), Intellectual Property & iEdison, and an Administrators Boot Camp.
