NIH REGIONAL SEMINAR ON
PROGRAM FUNDING AND GRANTS ADMINISTRATION
Wednesday, June 23, 2010: eRA Computer Workshops (additional fee)
Thursday & Friday, June 24 & 25, 2010: Two-Day NIH Regional Seminar
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) invite you to be a part of the 2010 Regional Seminar on Program Funding and Grants Administration to be held in Portland, Oregon on Thursday & Friday, June 24 & 25, 2010. Optional eRA Computer Workshops are available prior to the seminar on Wednesday, June 23, for an additional fee.
The NIH Regional 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 seminar serves the NIH mission of providing education and training for the next generation of biomedical and behavioral scientists. NIH policy officials, grants management and program staff, as well as representatives from the Office for Human Research Protections and the Office of Laboratory Animal Welfare, will interact with seminar participants and provide a broad array of expertise. The seminars are appropriate for new grants administrators (or those wishing updates to NIH policies and process), as well as new investigators, and graduate students.
The 2010 Regional Seminar will once again provide interactive sessions, panel discussions, and opportunities to meet with your peers from around the world. The NIH holds two Regional Seminars each year around the country so begin making your plans now and when registration and hotel information become available, prepare to book early – space is limited. Registration fees for the two-day seminar will be approximately $400 per person based on early registration. Optional eRA computer workshops will cost approximately $150 for either a morning or afternoon session, based on early registration.
For questions regarding logistics or registration, please contact Ripple Effect Conference Services at firstname.lastname@example.org. The agenda is in development and will be available in the next couple of months. In the meantime, you may look at the most recent seminar Web site in Las Vegas, NV in 2009 at http://www.nihregionalseminar.com/site/index.html.

Additional questions regarding the agenda may be addressed to Cynthia Dwyer at Dwyerc@mail.nih.gov.
Watch for registration to open early 2010.
