NIBIB Grantsmanship Seminar Planned for October 17
The National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) invites all interested colleagues to attend an NIBIB regional grantsmanship seminar on Monday, October 17. This event will be hosted by the Washington Academy of Biomedical Engineering (WABME) at the George Washington University Marvin Center in Washington, DC.
WABME is an interdisciplinary and multi-institutional effort to promote research, technology transfer, and education in biomedical engineering in the national capital region. The core members of WABME are faculty from the biomedical engineering/bioengineering programs and activities of the Catholic University of America, Georgetown University, George Washington University, and Howard University.
This grantsmanship seminar is intended to provide an overview of NIBIB funding opportunities and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) application, review, and grant-making processes and policies. Faculty, researchers, students, and others interested in research opportunities in bioengineering, biomedical imaging, and research training opportunities at the NIH are invited to attend. The seminar is especially designed to benefit quantitative scientists who have little familiarity with NIH but who are interested in biomedical applications.
The one-day program will feature presentations from NIBIB science program and scientific review staff on the following topics:
- Introduction and Status of the NIBIB
- NIH General Overview
- Overview of NIBIB Research Areas & Opportunities
- Research Training & Career Development
- NIH Peer Review Process
- NIH Grant Application 101
Those interested in attending the grantsmanship seminar may register at the website listed in the Related Items box below. The registration fee is $150.00 for general attendance and $50.00 for student attendance. Early registration is advised as space is limited and on-site registration (if available) will be more expensive.
