Looking to learn about obtaining and managing NIH grant awards? Two 
regional seminars covering topics related to NIH extramural program 
funding and grants administration are planned for 2004. The regional 
seminars provide information about the entire funding process, from 
opportunity identification and application preparation through post 
award administration.  Presentations are targeted towards researchers 
new to NIH, research administrators, post docs and trainees. Informal 
interaction between seminar participants and NIH program, grants 
management, review and grants policy staff at the seminar to address 
individual issues is highly encouraged.  

We are also offering hands-on computer training in NIH electronic 
research administration in conjunction with each of the seminars.  
There will be a lab targeted towards grants administrators, another for 
principal investigators, and a third specifically on the preparation of 
electronic financial status reports.  

The seminars will be held on:

May 6-7, 2004 in Miami, FL hosted by the University of Miami and 
Florida A&M University, College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical 
Sciences (hands-on computer labs to be offered on May 5)

June 24-25, 2004 in Seattle, Washington hosted by the University 
of Washington School of Medicine (hands-on computer labs to be 
offered on June 23)

A draft program and logistical information for the seminars are posted 
at:  Questions regarding 
registration or logistics should be directed to the host universities 
at the address provided on the websites.  Questions on the program
