In the Research Funding Insights Room (254 A in the Salt Palace Convention Center) at the SOT Annual Meeting and ToxExpo, volunteers from funding agencies discuss aspects of scientific review or specific grant opportunities with interested attendees. New investigators are especially encouraged to meet with program staff, but investigators at any level are welcome to come discuss opportunities and processes for the representative funding agencies. The room provides a great opportunity for attendees to connect to discuss funding opportunities. There are benefits for funding recipients and funders alike.


The room will be open:

  • Monday, March 11, 9:30 AM to 3:00 PM
  • Tuesday, March 12, 9:30 AM to 3:30 PM
  • Wednesday, March 13, 9:30 AM to 3:30 PM

The room is closed for a lunch break each day from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm.

You can view the schedule online to identify when specific agency representatives are available. No appointments are necessary, but you can visit Room 254 A to sign up ahead of time, if desired.
