About the RGA Program

Do you manage NIH applications and grants for research involving human subjects? 

The rules and regulations associated with creating and managing grant applications submitted to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services/National Institutes of Health (NIH) and National Eye Institute (NEI) are ever changing. Make sure you are up to date.

Attend this event on Nov. 9 - 10 to learn what’s new at NIH/NEI. Learn about policy updates and key changes to grant application forms from NIH/NEI staff. You will leave these sessions with practical advice for addressing the changes.
