A Roadmap Epigenomics Program Technical Assistance Workshop, hosted by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), was held on December 7, 2007, from 1:00-5:00 pm, on the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) campus in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina. The workshop afforded potential applicants the opportunity to discuss and clarify any issues related to the Roadmap Epigenomics RFAs with NIH staff.
The meeting included an overview of the Roadmap Epigenomics Program, presentations on the six funding opportunities, and a question and answer session addressing RFA-related questions.
Potential applicants had the option of attending in person, listening in by teleconference, or viewing the meeting by webcast. If you were unable to attend the meeting, or had difficulty hearing or viewing the webcast, you can view it now by Webcast Video. If you have any problems viewing the video, please refer to the Video Test Page at http://www.niehs.nih.gov/news/video/help/test/.
If you have additional questions or would like to discuss the Roadmap Epigenomics Program and your potential application in greater detail, please contact the appropriate Funding Opportunity Roadmap Contact.
