The purpose of the workshop is to allow for the exchange of science; to impart information on applying for research project grants; to acquaint attendees with the opportunities and options open to them in the field of biomedical research; to receive feedback from attendees on ways to improve NIAID fellowship and career programs; and to meet discuss research and training programs offered by the participating NIH institutes.
