The NIH Regional Seminar is intended for those new to the grants process, including sponsored project officers and departmental administrators, investigators, faculty, graduate students, and others involved in the NIH grants process.  Over the course of two days, it also provides an opportunity to those with more experience to obtain updates on grants policies and procedures.  Several new policy sessions added this year will also offer additional opportunities for more advanced content and discussions.

The NIH Regional Seminar offers a comprehensive program for the NIH extramural community about the NIH grants process and related policies, including such topics as Fundamentals of the NIH, compliance, peer review, grant writing for success, pre-award and post-award issues for administrators and investigators, animal and human subject research, and how to interact electronically with NIH. Three tracks of sessions for administrators, new investigators, and all interests provide an array of topic choices.  Special interest sessions are also provided on topics such as research integrity, intellectual property and data sharing, foreign collaborations, R& D Contracts, and ClinicalTrials.gov.  Meet and hear from the NIH Deputy Director of Extramural Research, Dr. Michael Lauer, on the latest funding trends, NIH program initiatives, and so much more.  Optional pre-seminar workshops are also offered.
