During the 2-day NIH Grants Conference, you will have the opportunity to schedule 20-minute conversations directly with NIH experts representing most of our NIH Institutes and Centers (ICs), as well as many offices located within the Office of the Director.
During the conference, stop by the Central Resource Room to locate the Event Support Desk for guidance and booths focused on helping you get answers (e.g. Ask a Program Officer, Ask a Training Officer, etc.). Additional booths in the three halls will be staffed from 11:00 AM – 5:00 PM with NIH experts.
As a registered attendee, you’ll receive an email when appointments open for scheduling. Instructions will be provided for making your 20-minute appointment with one or more NIH experts.
Prior to the conference: We invite you to explore each of the four rooms, located in the virtual Exhibit Hall 24/7. During this time, booths will not be staffed. For this reason, each Institute, Center, and Special Program booth includes contact information for questions, along with all of the other resources to view and download.
During the 2-day conference: Most of the exhibitor booths will be staffed for general questions and may also include specific 1:1 appointment information.
