NCURA Virtual Workshop - NIH Fundamentals

This virtual workshop for Faculty and Staff will last for 3.5 hours, with a 15 minute break around the 90 minute mark.

NCURA (National Council of University Research Administrators) is an organization that provides education and networking opportunities to the research administration community.  This workshop provides a primary basis of understanding of proposals to and awards from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). This workshop will give you the basics and we will walk you through the grants process, and give you an overview of key resources and websites you will need to be successful. The program is perfect for someone new to Research Administration, as well as for Research Administrators seeking to expand their knowledge of federal funding agencies. The curriculum provides an overview of the policies and procedures essential to preparing successful proposals to and managing grant awards from the NIH.

Major content areas covered include:

- NIH overall structure, culture, and organization

- Developing and submitting NIH proposals

- The merit review process

- Post-Award administration

- Tips and tricks
