Pain is a major public health concern in this country. Our most recent survey establishes that more than 25 million Americans experience pain every single day. From a health professional point of view, finding an effective way to manage pain can be a serious challenge.

Resources for Researchers
Are you a researcher, new or early career scientist, or research administrator interested in learning more about applying for NIH grants, mapping your career with NIH, or managing NIH awards? Consider attending one of the 2016 NIH Regional Seminars on Program Funding and Grants Administration in Baltimore, MD (May 11-13) or Chicago, IL (October 26-28). More than 60 NIH and HHS policy, review, program, and grants management officials will be on hand to share the latest updates and guidance on NIH-wide programs, policies, and updates on the NIH grants process…all in a central location. In addition to 45 different topics provided during the seminar, attendees have the opportunity to have 15 minute chats with NIH & HHS staff during the “1:1 Meet the Experts.” There is no limit to the number of staff members you can meet with during the two-day seminar. In the post-seminar evaluations, attendees often note that these opportunities were some of the most valuable activities at the NIH Regional Seminar.
