NIH Workshops:

"Excellent information was provided. They are very accessible and available for necessary assistance." 
– Professor, Mexico

"I attended an NIH workshop delivered by the University of Maryland, it provided tips and advice for applying to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) as a foreign organization. I found the workshop interesting and was surprised by how many NIH funding opportunities are available to universities outside of the USA. Beth and Rebecca are great presenters, very knowledgeable and make a great team."
