Future Research Leaders Conference

September 12 - 14, 2017, NIH Campus in Bethesda, MD

Discover Scientific Opportunities at NIH

The Future Research Leaders Conference (FRLC) is a career-development opportunity for talented early-career biomedical and behavioral scientists from diverse backgrounds. During the FRLC, selected early-career scientists will showcase their research to the NIH scientific community and gain insights from NIH leadership and investigators about developing an independent scientific career. The event is most appropriate for post-doc and junior-faculty level investigators.

The next FRLC, which is embedded within the annual NIH Research Festival, will be held at the NIH campus in Bethesda, MD, September 12–14, 2017. Join the conversation using #FRLC2017.
