Face-to-Face (F2F) with Program Officers

f2f logo 

Join Drs. Michelle Bond and Jiong Yang once a month for Face-to-Face (F2F) with
Program Officers
. F2F is a monthly series of live, non-recorded meetings, each having a 30-minute presentation on topics relevant to NIGMS grant applications and related processes followed by a 30-minute open question/answer session. The target audience is early-stage investigators and trainees on the pathway to independence. While anyone is welcome to attend, it is expected that most attendees will have a research focus within the two program officers’ research areas. Discussion topics will be announced in advance. Should you be interested in participating in F2F, contact Dr. Bond or Dr. Yang at least 1 week prior to the listed meetings so that meeting credentials can be shared in advance. Attendance is limited and if the cap is reached, a second session may be held. Attendance and registration are voluntary.
