NIH Training Staff Contact List

Possibly the most valuable post I will ever do. This information is from the huge book /document called the SF424 (R&R) Fellowship Application Guide. It will make you cry. Do not try to read it in one or two sittings. Try and use the index to find what you want. Better yet go to every seminar offered by your university about funding. (note date below- do not use info if it is more than a year old).
