A “Capital” Idea: Attend NIH Regional Seminar, Get Discounted Rates

It’s only December, but you might want to look ahead to May 2 to 4. That’s when the 2018 NIH Regional Seminar on Program Funding and Grants Administration takes place in Washington, D.C. Note: If you sign up before next Friday, December 15, you’ll benefit from discounted rates.

If you’re an investigator, administrator, or anyone else new to the NIH grants process, the Regional Seminar offers a chance to gain a better perspective of NIH policies and programs, network with peers, and gather helpful NIH contacts. To see the schedule and topics for pre-seminar and seminar sessions, check out the Agenda.
