Have you been looking for a comprehensive program that provides valuable information about the NIH grants process, including such topics as peer review, grant writing for success, pre-award and post-award issues for administrators and investigators, compliance, and how to interact electronically with NIH?  What about an opportunity to meet and discuss grants issues with approximately 25 HHS and NIH officials, as well as networking with others in your field?  If so, make plans to attend a 2010 NIH Regional Seminar on Program Funding and Grants Administration in either Philadelphia, PA or Portland, OR.

In conjunction with the 2 seminars scheduled each year around the country, optional NIH Electronic Research Administration (eRA) computer workshops are also offered.  These workshops are designed for Principal Investigators and administrators, providing attendees with hands-on experience utilizing the eRA Commons.  

Anyone interested in the NIH grants process should consider attending, including Sponsored Project Office and departmental administrators, new and early stage investigators, graduate students, and post docs.
