- Demystify the application and review process
- Clarify federal regulations and policies
- Highlight current areas of special interest or concern
About the Experts
The NIH Regional Seminar involves approximately 35 NIH and HHS staff who are brought to a central location in order to educate, share, and listen to attendees over the course of two days. This seminar is your opportunity to make direct contact with NIH policy officials, grants management, program and review staff, eRA Commons experts, as well as representatives from the Office for Human Research Protections (OHRP), and Office of Research Integrity (ORI). In addition, take advantage of networking opportunities to learn from fellow attendees from around the world.
Who Should Attend
The seminar and optional eRA workshops are appropriate for grants administrators, new and early stage investigators, researchers, graduate students, and anyone interested in the grants administration process. This year we are offering more networking opportunities than ever before...additional Institute/Center representation with one-on-one meeting opportunities and inclusion of sessions on NIH niche programs such as the AREA/R15 program.
Make plans now and book early - space is limited.
