About Scientific Interest Groups at NIH

NIH Scientific Interest Groups are assemblies of scientists with common research interests. These groups sponsor symposia, poster sessions and lectures; offer mentoring and career guidance for junior scientists; help researchers share the latest techniques and information; act as informal advisors to the Deputy Director of Intramural Research (DDIR); provide advice for the annual NIH Research Festival; and serve as hosts for the Wednesday Afternoon Lecture Series. Many of these groups are cosponsored by neighboring academic and government institutions and welcome interested non-NIH scientists.

Information about group activities or new groups is published in The NIH Catalyst and on the DDIR Web Board (NIH staff only). Some central coordination for the groups is provided by the Office of Intramural Research.
