RGA Program

 

Virtual event: Nov. 9 - 10

 

The Research Grant Administrators (RGA) Program is an opportunity for the vibrant community of research grant administrators, research directors, grant financial managers, grant writers, and project and clinical trial administrators from schools, labs, institutes and societies to gather together to learn, network, and discuss their work and share best practices.

 

Join us for this two-day virtual event featuring a content-rich program that includes a presentation from NAEVR/AEVR. Attendees will also be able to virtually meet and interact with NIH and NEI representatives to discuss 2022 Biosketch and Other Support changes, NCBI, eRA Commons and much more! 

 

*This online event includes three sessions each day (Nov. 9 - 10) with a break between the sessions. Please log in early as all sessions will start on time.
