The NIH Regional Seminar is the ideal place to gain a better understanding of the NIH Grants Process and Policies.  Get the latest news and updates on Clinical Trials, Diversity in Extramural Research, Rigor & Reproducibility, electronic Research Administration, Contracts, a Mock Study Section Meeting, Intellectual Property, NIH Programs, Grants Compliance, Humans and Animals in Research, and so much more.  (Check out even more samples on the New Orleans website “Welcome” page.)

In addition to the two-day seminar, this year we have seven pre-seminar workshops! These opportunities include a full day workshop from the Office of Human Research Protections (OHRP) and OER, as well as half day workshops provided by the Office of Policy for Extramural Research Administration (OPERA), electronic Research Administration (eRA), and the Division of Extramural Inventions & Technology Resources (DEITR).
