Why Attend? The NIH Regional Seminar involves approximately 65 NIH and HHS staff who are brought to a central location in order to educate, share, and hear your questions over the course of two days, plus pre-seminar workshops. There are over 45 different topic areas and 6 optional workshops covering human subjects, electronic research administration, a “boot camp” for beginners, and intellectual property. See the two day seminar & pre-seminar workshop agendas for more details.

This seminar is your opportunity to make direct contact with NIH policy officials, grants management, program and review staff, and representatives from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office for Human Research Protections (OHRP), HHS Office of the Inspector General (OIG), and others. Plus, you’ll be able to take advantage of discussions involving more than 600 fellow attendees from around the world.

Unique Opportunity to Meet NIH Face-to-Face: In addition to learning more about the NIH grants processes and policies through the optional workshops and two days of sessions, there are opportunities throughout the seminar to Meet the Experts 1:1. These 15 minute chats are a great way to get more specific questions answered by NIH & HHS experts. You’ll have the opportunity to sign up in advance or on-site to speak with the expert(s) of your choice while participating in the seminar. With the Washington, DC location located close to NIH, expect even more NIH & HHS experts to join us.

Registration rates increase on Saturday, December 16. Space is limited and these seminars traditionally reach capacity prior to the event, so register now and save your spot!
