Approximately 600 attendees are expected from across the U.S. & around the World, providing extended opportunities for sharing and learning from peers. During the seminar, attendees will be able to interact with over 45 NIH & HHS officials from multiple Institutes and Centers during presentations, breaks and with additional staff during the popular "1:1 Meet the Experts".
The sessions and optional workshops offered during the seminar are intended for those new to the NIH grants process, including sponsored project officers and departmental administrators, new investigators, faculty, graduate students, etc. For attendees with more experience, the seminar provides an opportunity to obtain the latest updates on grants policies and procedures.
During the seminar, concurrent sessions are offered across 3 tracks for administrators, new investigators, and all interests.
Optional Pre-Seminar Workshops:
On the day prior to the seminar, several optional workshops are offered for both administrators and new investigators for an additional fee. If you are brand new to NIH policies and process, then the "Administrator's Boot Camp: Getting Started with NIH" would be ideal to get you acquainted before the 2-day seminar begins. For those who are more interested in the electronic grants process, there are two 1/2 day workshops offered from eRA on the application submission process & working with the eRA Commons. New investigators may be interested in a full day workshop on human research protections.
