NMRI Annual Meeting

Event Details Agenda Abstracts

Event Details

In support of the Office of Personnel Management guidance to strengthen our efforts to protect the federal workforce and ensure continuity of operations, NIH is urging that large meetings and symposia organized by NIH over the next 30 days either be held virtually using tele/videoconferencing services, postponed, or cancelled. In accordance with this guidance and to provide adequate notice, the 2020 NMRI Annual Meeting is cancelled.

Background

More than 700 researchers have participated in NMRI workshops in the past decade, and approximately 100+ are active members. The success of the NMRI, a network that is “owned” by its members and supported by the NIDDK, begins with the dedication of senior investigators who mentor and serve as role models for junior investigators. The participation of active members and the recruitment of new members is a primary reason for the Network’s success in the past and the reason for confidence that it will continue to grow in the future.

Important Deadlines

If you meet membership eligibility and is requesting a NMRI Travel Award please be sure to register for the meeting no later than March 16, 2020.

Meeting Registration Deadline: March 30, 2020

Abstract Submission Deadline: March 16, 2020
