About NRMN
The National Institutes of Health-funded NRMN was created to address the unmet need for greater diversity in the biomedical and biobehavioral research workforce.

The NRMN is offering a series of four intensive coaching programs to support investigators from underrepresented populations who are at a later training stage, specifically postdoctoral fellows and junior faculty. These programs are designed to enhance participants' career development, preparing them to meet each program's ultimate goal: the submission of strong research and research career development proposals for funding in the biomedical or biobehavioral sciences.  Learn more about the four programs here

The Office for Human Research Protections (OHRP) co-hosts with

The Office of Extramural Research (OER) at the National Institutes of Health

A one-day pre-seminar workshop

“Getting through Human Research Reviews with Skill”

On Wednesday October 14, 2015

At the 2015 NIH Regional Seminar, Hilton San Diego Bayfront in San Diego, California

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

 REGISTER NOW at http://regionalseminars.od.nih.gov/sandiego2015/sessions/00a/ if you answer YES to any of the following questions:

  • Do you feel quite baffled by the different requirements on human research protections and wondered how you could get ahead of the process?
  • Are you sometimes confused when a research using data collected from human participants is considered ‘human subjects research’ and when it is not?
  • Have you ever felt frustrated with being told that you had not included adequate protections for human participants, when you had already spent hours working on the proposal?
