  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 June 12-13, 1995, in Boston Massachusetts.  This

seminar, hosted by the Beth Israel Hospital, is designed to attract

people from the northeast region, although interested individuals

from other regions are welcome to participate.  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.  As part of the

seminar, a workshop on the fundamentals of NIH research

administration (with an emphasis on post-award administration) will

be offered; enrollment will be limited.
