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.
