NIH is pleased to announce the 2020 call for nominations for the Office of Disease Prevention Early-Stage Investigator Lecture.

The award winner will be invited, with all travel expenses covered, to give a lecture at the NIH on Wednesday, April 8, 2020. The awardee will also have the opportunity for professional networking with NIH program directors and scientists.
