The National Institutes of Health (NIH) invite you to be a part of the 2010 Regional Seminar on Program Funding and Grants Administration! To be held in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on April 15-16, 2010, the event will also feature an optional electronic Research Administration (eRA) Hands-on Computer Workshop available prior to the seminar on April 14, 2010.

The NIH Regional Seminars are intended to help demystify the application and review process, clarify federal regulations and policies, and highlight current areas of special interest or concern. The seminar serves the NIH mission of providing education and training for the next generation of biomedical and behavioral scientists. NIH policy officials, grants management and program staff, as well as representatives from the Office for Human Research Protections and the Office of Laboratory Animal Welfare, will interact with seminar participants and provide a broad array of expertise. The seminars and workshop are appropriate for grants administrators, new researchers, and graduate students, among others.

Exciting opportunities await those who join us in 2010 - more interactive sessions, panel discussions, and opportunities to meet with your peers from around the world. The NIH holds two Regional Seminars each year around the country so begin making your plans now and book early - space is limited.

Inquiries regarding logistics or registration, please contact Ripple Effect Conference Services at For inquires or comments regarding the program agenda, please contact Ms. Cynthia Dwyer at

We look forward to seeing you at the 2010 NIH Regional Seminar in the city of brotherly love, Philadelphia!
