FelCom - Visiting Fellows Committee

NIH Visiting Fellow Logo

The NIH Visiting Fellows Committee (NIHVFC) is composed of NIH post-doctoral visiting fellows (VFs) from all around the world. It is a self-governing body serving the interest of visiting fellows in their transition to life at the NIH, by working to make their experience here worthwhile; as well as creating the opportunities for visiting fellows to maintain continuity in their research upon returning to their home countries. NIHVFC also plans to encourage the establishment and maintenance of strong institutional links of VFs with NIH after they complete their training and go back to their home countries. 


The VFC hosts a listserv, which provides information on events and opportunities specifically for foreign postdoctoral fellows at the NIH.

If you would like more information about the subcommittee or would like to become a member, please contact the subcommittee co-chairs listed below:
