Support of Scientific Meetings (R13, U13)

NIGMS provides support for scientific meetings, conferences and workshops that are relevant to its scientific mission. Scientific meetings may be funded by grant (R13) or cooperative agreement (U13) assistance mechanisms and may be funded for up to 5 years. Any U.S. institution or organization, including an established scientific or professional society, is eligible to apply. NIGMS first requires potential applicants to submit a letter of intent to one of the NIGMS contacts listed below at least 30 days before the application deadline. The letter of intent must contain the title, purpose, significance, content, audience and location of the proposed meeting. Note that acceptance of a letter of intent does not substitute for the conference grant application. There must be at least 6 months between the application deadline and the date of the proposed conference. For more information, see the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts, January 4, 2010, (PA-10-071), the Guidelines for Support of Scientific Meetings by NIGMS or contact the appropriate individual listed below:
