Each year, the Office of Extramural Research (OER) sponsors the NIH Regional Seminars on Program Funding and Grants Administration. These seminars are intended to help demystify the application and review process, clarify Federal regulations and policies, and highlight current areas of special interest or concern. The seminars serve the NIH mission of providing education and training for the next generation of biomedical and behavioral scientist. NIH policy, grants management, review and program staff provide a broad array of expertise and encourage personal interaction between themselves and seminar participants. The seminars are appropriate for grants administrators, researchers new to NIH, and graduate students.
Upcoming seminar dates are October 17-19, 2018 in San Francisco, CA and May 15-17, 2019 in Baltimore, MD. Further information, including registration, agendas, and materials from past seminars can be found at https://grants.nih.gov/news/contact-in-person/seminars.htm.
