National Institutes of Health

A regional conference covering topics related to grants

administration at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has been

scheduled for Thursday through Friday, January 14-15, 1993, at the

San Diego Marriott - La Jolla in La Jolla, California.  La Jolla is a

beautiful coastal community, located just 20 minutes from Lindbergh

Field, San Diego's International Airport.

The conference, hosted by the University of California, San Diego, is

located to attract research administrators from the western region of

the United States--Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii,

Idaho, Montana, Nevada, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah,

Washington, and Wyoming.  Those interested from other states are

encouraged to attend.  In addition, staff from small and minority

colleges, for-profit research organizations, hospitals, universities,

and research institutes and centers are also invited.

This two-day conference will be of interest to both new and senior

grants administrators and principal investigators.  Discussions of

current issues that affect NIH funding and grants administration are

included to give conference participants a comprehensive, up-to-date

view of NIH-sponsored research.  Topics for discussion will include

the fundamentals in conducting business with NIH (application

preparation, peer review, budget analysis, and award determination),

and contemporary topics (strategic and financial management plan,

indirect cost, and administrative effectiveness between NIH and

recipients).  The format for this conference will include case

studies, group discussions, and formal presentations.  Time will be

available for conference participants to meet informally with NIH

representatives and discuss topics of special interest.

Mr. Geoffrey Grant, Grants Policy Officer in the Office of Extramural

Research at NIH, and outstanding representatives from the Division of

Research Grants, grants management, and program staff of several

awarding components of NIH will be featured speakers.
