|Registration open for 2008 NIH regional seminars|
Registration is now open for two NIH regional seminars planned for 2008. Due to the popularity of these seminars, early registration is highly recommended; space is limited.
NIH regional seminars encompass two full days, providing information about the NIH funding process, from opportunity identification and application preparation, through post award administration. Presentations are targeted towards 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 (eRA) computer labs are offered on a day adjacent to the two-day seminar. For 2008, the following eRA lab sessions are offered: administration basics, eRA commons status, financial status report status, X-Train, and eRA commons for PIs and delegates.
The 2008 seminars will be held:
March 25-26 in San Antonio, Texas. This two-day seminar will be hosted by the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. NIH eRA computer labs will be offered Thursday, March 27.
