NIH/FDA COVID-19 Research Workshop

In-Person at the NIAID Conference Center Grand Hall

Rockville, Maryland, 20892


Welcome to the 2023 COVID-19 Scientific Interest Group Symposium registration site.

The last three and a half years have brought unprecedented changes to the world with the COVID-19 pandemic. In response to this challenge, the scientific community has mobilized on many fronts with advances in vaccines, diagnostics, treatments, pathology, immunology, virology, structural biology, cell biology, epidemiology and many other areas. However, many challenges still remain, particularly in the areas of long-term pathology, treatments, viral variants, and the development of broadly protective vaccines. To help facilitate interactions and highlight work from NIH/FDA investigators, the NIH/FDA COVID-19 scientific interest group is hosting our third workshop for NIH/FDA staff on Tuesday, November 28, 2023 from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. We look forward to your active participation to make this workshop a success during this challenging time.

Registration for the 2023 NIH/FDA COVID-19 Symposium is NOW OPEN.

Here are some essential things to know about the Workshop:

  • The symposium will consist of a mixture of talks and flash talks chosen from the abstracts. While you do not need to submit an abstract to attend, we encourage abstracts to be submitted for all stages of research.
  • Abstracts should be no longer than 300 words. Keep in mind that the abstract that is submitted in your registration is the final version. Edits or changes in your abstract cannot be accepted after you have completed your registration unless you contact the organizers. Use only Roman characters. Please proofread carefully and make sure you have checked with your PI (if needed) before you submit your abstract. Abstracts may be withdrawn BEFORE October 30, 2023 by contacting the organizers.
  • Abstract submission will be closed on October 30, 2023. We have received a lot of interest in this symposium and we expect registration to fill up rapidly. Registration will be closed when we reach capacity to hold the in-person workshop program, so please register as soon as possible.
  • Official Acceptance will follow in a separate email and will be on a strict first-come, first-serve basis and favor those with science to share (i.e. with an abstract). Please, register EARLY. Only registered individuals will receive an electronic list of the abstracts and an invitation to attend the workshop.

We expect to have a full and exciting agenda of cutting-edge talks, flash talk sessions, and posters.

The workshop will be limited to members of the NIH and FDA communities, so your active participation is highly encouraged. We hope that this will be a major opportunity for researchers to share their most exciting COVID-19 research with the NIH/FDA community.
