  Grants Administration/Policy+ 

National Institutes of Health

A regional conference covering topics related to grants administration

at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has been scheduled for

Monday and Tuesday, June 28-29, 1993, at the Sheraton Hotel in Augusta,


The seminar, hosted by the Medical College of Georgia, is located to

attract research administrators from the southern region of the United

States -- Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana,

Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee,

Texas, Virginia, and West Virginia.  Those interested from other states

are also invited.  In addition, staff from small and minority colleges,

for-profit research organizations, hospitals, universities and medical

centers are encouraged to attend.

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

grant administrators and Principal Investigators.  Discussions of

current issues that affect NIH funding and grant administration will be

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

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

fundamentals of conducting business with NIH (application preparation,

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

topics (strategic and financial management plans, indirect costs, and

effective administration 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 to discuss

topics of special interest.

Mr. Geoffrey Grant, Director, Office of Policy for Extramural Research

Administration at NIH, and representatives from the Grants Policy

Office, Division of Research Grants, and  grants management and program

staff from several awarding components of NIH will be featured
