  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 has been

scheduled for November 17-18, 1994, in Albuquerque, New Mexico.  The

seminar, hosted by the Offices of Research Administration and

Continuing Medical Education at the University of New Mexico, is

intended to attract faculty and research administrators from the

southwest 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 and new and senior research administrators.

Discussions of current issues that affect NIH funding and grants

administration will be featured to give seminar participants a

comprehensive view of NIH-sponsored research.  There will be time

available to network with colleagues and meet informally with NIH

representatives to discuss topics of special interest.

The faculty will include Geoffrey Grant, Joellen Harper, and Sue

Ohata from the Office of Policy for Extramural Research

Administration; Wayne Berry, Division of Financial Management; Faye

Calhoun, Ph.D., Division of Research Grants; Joseph Ellis, NIA;

Marvin Kalt, Ph.D, NCI; Mary Kirker, NIAID; Yvonne Maddox, Ph.D.,

NIGMS; and Carol Tippery, NIGMS.
