Topic: Applying for NIH Funding from Australia: Overview of the Process

This is greater than the entire Australian Governments Research and Development budget. While the National Institutes of Health (NIH) mainly funds researchers in the USA, there are no limitations on investigators and foreign institutions' locations that it can fund. Associate Professor Serrador will provide an overview of finding funding opportunities discussing key points when applying for funding, emphasising the common mistakes investigators make and the common pitfalls.
