UMBC joined the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and Towson University in co-hosting the 2014 Regional Seminar on Program Funding and Grants Administration on June 25-27, 2014.
The seminar is intended to demystify the NIH application and review process, clarify federal regulations and policies, and highlight current areas of special interest for research administrators, graduate students and new investigators. Over 800 participants from across the nation and from a variety of research institutes attended the seminar.
“We are delighted that UMBC was invited to co-host this Regional NIH Seminar,” says Karl Steiner, Vice President for Research at UMBC. “The exposure of our colleagues to the latest information directly from NIH is invaluable, and it gave our campus a chance to share with other participants the exciting research activities underway at UMBC.”
