  Grants Administration/Policy+ 

National Institutes of Health

A regional seminar covering topics related to program funding and

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

been scheduled for July 21-22, 1994.  The seminar, hosted by

Northwestern University and held on its Evanston campus, is intended

to attract faculty and research administrators from the midwest

region of the United States, although those interested from other

regions are also invited and welcome.  Staff from small and minority

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

and medical centers are encouraged to attend.

This two-day seminar will have a dual focus of interest to both

academic researchers, as well as new and senior research

administrators.  Discussions of current issues that affect NIH

funding and grants administration will be featured to give conference

participants a comprehensive view of NIH-sponsored research.  There

will be time available to network with fellow researchers and meet

informally with NIH representatives to discuss topics of special


Mr. Geoffrey Grant, Acting Director, NIH Office of Policy for

Extramural Research Administration, and outstanding representatives

from the Grants Policy Office, Division of Research Grants, and

several awarding components of the NIH will be featured speakers.
