NIH Staff Office Hours

Meet one-on-one with NIH program staff from thirteen different NIH Institutes and Centers during "NIH Staff Office Hours." Office Hours are held concurrently during the poster sessions on June 6 and 7 from 3:15 - 5:00 PM in rooms Insight, Wisdom, and Balance. Program Officials or Officers (POs) have the official responsible for the programmatic, scientific, and/or technical aspects of a grant. Program Officers administer grant portfolios, set scientific priorities, advise investigators, and act as an advocate for a science area. A program is a coherent assembly of plans, project activities, and supporting resources contained within an administrative framework, the purpose of which is to implement an organization’s mission or some specific program-related aspect of that mission.

Please keep to your scheduled time as a courtesy to others, and there is a two slot limit per person. Note: If the Doodle poll shows the slot grayed out and you cannot select it, it means the slot has been taken.
