Eligible Scientific Meetings and Conferences

The goal of the FASEB Diversity Resources Program is to support educational activities that complement and/or enhance the training of a workforce to meet the nation’s biomedical, behavioral and clinical research needs.  Therefore, participant selection will take into consideration whether an individual’s participation would help achieve the overall goals and objectives of the FASEB Diversity Resources Program. For more information, please see NIH's Diversity Statement: Notice of NIH's Interest in Diversity" (NOT-OD-15-053).
