Interested faculty and researchers are invited to attend a workshop on Friday, Sept. 29, 1–3:30 p.m. for the Fall 2017 offering of this training. The workshop will provide an overview of NIH funding opportunities, further details on the faculty incentive program, and advice from an expert panel who have had funding success with NIH.
