Attend Planning Workshop to Prepare for 2019 NIH Regional Seminars

April 03, 2019

There is still time to register for the spring 2019 National Institutes of Health (NIH) Regional Seminar, May 15-17, in Baltimore, Maryland, and to prepare by attending the pre-seminar workshop offered by the Research and Faculty Development (RFD) team at 1-2 p.m. Thursday, April 11, in IRIC 231 (or join via Zoom).

The NIH Regional Seminars Orientation Workshop will prepare faculty and staff to attend a NIH Regional Seminar. The RFD team will present an overview of NIH as well as strategies to get the most out of attending a NIH seminar, including tips to prepare to talk with Program Officers. We will also hear from a U of I faculty member who attended the Fall 2018 NIH Regional Seminar.

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) holds two seminars a year to demystify the proposal process for those who are new to the NIH grants process, including faculty members and grants administrators. The seminar sessions provide a deep dive into the application and review process, highlight current policies, and offer tips for writing competitive proposals. There are also opportunities for attendees to meet one-on-one with NIH Program Officers to discuss proposal ideas.

The 2019 NIH Regional Seminars are May 15-17 in Baltimore, Maryland, and November 6-8 in Phoenix, Arizona (registration opens in May). The NIH Regional Seminar webpage has the latest information on upcoming seminars and instructions to subscribe to the NIH Regional Seminar listserve.
