Notice of Informational Webinar for NIH Research Enhancement Award (R15) Programs

The NIH R15 programs support small-scale research projects at educational institutions that provide baccalaureate or advanced degrees for a significant number of the Nation’s research scientists but have not been major recipients of NIH support. This webinar will provide prospective grant applicants and grant administrators with an overview of the R15 program and insight into key components of the R15 grant application, including a Q &A with NIH officials.
