Conference and Meeting Funding
Scientific Conference Grants support national and international meetings sponsored and directed by R13 grantees. Such meetings must be relevant to the goals of the Division of Comparative Medicine. To ensure the Division's interest in the proposed meeting, prospective grantees must contact a program official for written approval prior to submission of an application. If the Division determines a sufficient need to have substantial involvement in the planning and conduct of the scientific meeting, then a cooperative agreement (U13)—instead of an R13—would be awarded.
