Are you ready for an opportunity to meet and discuss grant issues with NIH policy officers, grants management, review and program officials, and NIH senior leadership…all in a central location? 

Would you like the opportunity to network over the course of 2 days with grants administrators, researchers, students, financial officials, and grant writers from around the world? 

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, how to interact electronically with NIH, or how to map your career with NIH? 

If so, make plans to attend the 2013 NIH Regional Seminar on Program Funding and Grants Administration in Baltimore, Maryland.  This year, there will be only one NIH Regional Seminar and you won’t want to miss it!

The NIH Regional Seminar is intended for those new to the grants process, including sponsored project officers and departmental administrators, investigators, faculty, graduate students, etc. Over the course of two days, it also provides an opportunity to those with more experience to obtain updates on grants policies and procedures.  Approximately 600-800 attendees are expected, providing extended opportunities for sharing and learning from peers as well as NIH experts. Due to the popularity of these seminars, early registration is highly recommended (plus you can take advantage of special rates).  Space is limited. 

An optional NIH Electronic Research Administration (eRA) workshop is offered the day before the 2-day seminar.  This workshop will be one full day for one price.  It is designed for administrators and investigators who are new to working with NIH, using the eRA Commons and desire a better understanding of the overall electronic grants process.
