Human Research Reviews: Mastering the Process

Detailed Agenda – Full Day  (Registration is still open for this stand-alone workshop. If interested in attending, email conferences@rippleeffect.com.)

This workshop aims to provide participants with the knowledge and information necessary to have their NIH grant applications and research protocols pass review for human research protections. It will focus on clarifying confusions and providing participants with practical tips and solutions to problems and difficulties commonly encountered during such reviews.

Note:  Participation in this full-day workshop could fulfill the NIH human subjects training requirement for key personnel. Participants who complete the workshop will be given a certificate of completion.

eRA Workshop: Grant Application Preparation & Submission

Detailed Agenda – Half Day (AM or PM)  (Registration is now closed for this workshop.)

Are you new to the NIH grant application process or overwhelmed by the logistics of submitting a grant application to NIH? Then this NIH eRA Workshop is for you.

We will guide the novice user through all the steps in the application submission process from finding a funding opportunity announcement to verifying your application has been successfully received at NIH. The session will focus on submitting a single-project grant application using Grants.gov downloadable forms or NIH’s new Application Submission System and Interface for Submission Tracking (ASSIST), but will also touch upon program-specific considerations for administrative requests (e.g., supplements, change of institution), fellowship, training, career development and multi-project applications. Participants are encouraged to bring questions, share their experiences, learn from others, and expand their professional network.

This “how-to” workshop lays the perfect foundation for the NIH Regional Seminar on Program Funding and Grants Administration. During the two day seminar, you’ll have the opportunity to build on that foundation and learn more about the policies and regulations, or the “why’s”, behind the “how’s”.

eRA Workshop: eRA Commons Account Administration & Post-Submission Processing

Detailed Agenda – Half Day (AM or PM)  (Registration is now closed for this workshop.)

Are you new to NIH grant administration? Have you recently started a new position or been given an eRA Commons account and you don’t know what to do with it? Then this NIH eRA Workshop is for you.

In this interactive session, we will guide the novice user through key aspects of account administration, maintaining profiles and post-submission processing in eRA Commons. Status, delegation, Just in Time (JIT), No Cost Extension (NCE), progress reporting, administrative supplements, Closeout, Federal Financial Report (FFR), and Financial Conflict of Interest (FCOI) are among the topics covered. Participants are encouraged to bring questions, share their experiences, learn from others, and expand their professional network.

This “how-to” workshop lays the perfect foundation for the NIH Regional Seminar on Program Funding and Grants Administration. During the two day seminar, you’ll have the opportunity to build on that foundation and learn more about the policies and regulations, or the “why’s”, behind the “how’s”.
