An NIH Regional Seminar on Program Funding and Grants Administration for 2015 will be held at the Bayfront Hilton in San Diego, CA, October 14-16. Registration is now open for this two day seminar designed for the NIH extramural community that will cover such topics as compliance, peer review, grant writing for success, pre- and post-award issues, human subject research, and electronic application preparation & submission. The event includes a session track designed for administrators as well as a redesigned track for new investigators that will focus on career mapping and the fundamentals of the funding process up to the time of award. Special interest sessions will also be held on topics such as research integrity, data sharing, training awards, and more.
This is a great opportunity to gain a better perspective of NIH policies and programs, network with peers, and gather helpful NIH contacts. Take a look at the agenda and register here.
