|NIH 2008 regional seminars cover program funding, grants administration|
Two NIH regional seminars covering topics related to NIH extramural program funding and grants administration have been planned for 2008. Each seminar encompasses two full days, providing information about the NIH funding process, from opportunity identification and application preparation through post award administration. Presentations are targeted to research administrators, new and experienced investigators, post docs and trainees. Opportunities for informal interactions between seminar participants and NIH grants management, program, policy, and review staff are incorporated into the program and such interactions are highly encouraged. NIH electronic research administration computer labs are offered on a day adjacent to the two-day seminar.
