2021 NIH Virtual Seminar on Program Funding and Grants Administration

The agenda is available here. Please join me for the plenary, where I will discuss the big picture of NIH and biomedical research. In separate sessions, my colleagues and I will share and discuss case studies on review integrity. I will host an “Open Mike” session, where the audience drives the topics. I am particularly looking forward to our “after hours” panel discussions on enhancing diversity, mentoring, and planning for one’s career path in biomedicine.

Interested? Please register today and share information about the seminar with students, trainees, those newer to NIH grants, and others who may not normally receive these invitations.

Are you looking to build research capacity at your institution? The NIH is currently planning an engaging, virtual pre-seminar event in October that delves into the challenges of capacity building, as well as NIH opportunities that can be utilized to enhance institutional and research infrastructure.
