NIGMS 2019 TWD Program Directors' Meeting

Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS), and the FASEB Office of Sponsored Programs, Diversity and Grants Administration, we’d like to welcome you to the Training, Workforce Development and Diversity (TWD) Program Directors' Meeting. We’re very excited about this meeting, which brings together a community of NIGMS trainers and educators dedicated to developing a diverse pool of scientists who have the skills to successfully transition into careers in the biomedical research workforce.

The meeting is designed to provide members of the NIGMS training community with opportunities to:

  • Network – establish new connections and strengthen existing relationships to enhance training, mentoring, diversity, and professional development
  • Exchange information, ideas, and innovations – share outcomes, tools, strategies, and effective practices
  • Communicate – share training challenges and opportunities, and learn about current NIH/NIGMS policies and priorities

We truly appreciate your commitment, expertise, dedication, and hard work. We look forward to seeing your presentations and talking to you over the course of the next few days.

Welcome and thanks again for your engagement.

Jacquelyn Roberts

Director, Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB), Office of Sponsored Programs, Diversity and Grants Administration
