National Institutes of Health (NIH), (http://www.nih.gov)

Have you been looking for a comprehensive program that provides valuable information about the NIH grants process and policies, 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 over 30 HHS and NIH officials, as well as networking with others in your field? If so, make plans to attend a 2011 NIH Regional Seminar on Program Funding and Grants Administration in either Phoenix, AZ or Ft. Lauderdale, FL.

In conjunction with the 2-day seminar, 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.

What’s New? This year, the seminar is expanding to offer more interaction opportunities than ever before…additional Institute/Center representation with one-on-one meeting opportunities, inclusion of sessions on NIH niche programs and initiatives, and more!

The NIH Regional Seminars are designed for those new to the NIH grants process, including sponsored project office and departmental administrators, investigators, graduate students, etc. However, it is also an opportunity for those more experienced to obtain updates on grants policies and procedures, as well as network with peers and NIH Faculty.

A Save the Date Page for the following locations has been posted on the NIH Regional Seminar Home Page at https://grants.nih.gov/grants/seminars.htm.

April 27-29, 2011 – Phoenix, AZ: (Registration expected to open early November 2010).

June 22-24, 2011 – Ft. Lauderdale, FL: (Registration expected to open early 2011).

These seminars provide an unparalleled opportunity for participants to gain a better perspective of NIH policies and programs, network with their peers, gather helpful NIH contacts, and to return to their offices and/or labs with inside information, resources, and tools to assist in obtaining and managing NIH awards.

Since the NIH Regional Seminars are only provided twice a year around the country, they traditionally reach capacity prior to the event - so once registration is open, please do so early.
