BIO Program Directors at Plant & Animal Genome XXVIII Conference

PAG Annual Meeting 2020

January 11-15, 2020

San Diego, CA

The National Science Foundation (NSF) will have a joint booth (#422) with the Department of Energy (DOE) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) at the PAG meeting in San Diego, CA.  Stop by the DOE-NSF-USDA booth to schedule an appointment to meet one-on-one with a NSF Program Director (PD), or to discuss funding opportunities, or ask other NSF-related questions.

NSF Program Directors will also be participating at several sessions during the meetings, so you will have additional opportunities throughout the meeting to ask them about NSF.
