NIH SBIR/STTR Overview
May 7 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pmFree
NIH invests more than $32 billion annually in medical research to enhance life, and to reduce illness and disability. For basic research advancing beyond the academic realm, NIH provides non-dilutive federal funding through the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs. The two programs award over $2.7 billion in R&D funding annually to qualified small businesses developing game-changing technologies.
This workshop will provide an overview of the National Institute of Health’s (NIH) grant programs. In addition to up-to-date information on the SBIR/STTR programs, it will cover:
- Review different NIH grant mechanisms and where to find them – navigating the NIH website
- Review of research projects qualities that would be considered Basic vs Translational
- How to find the program officers, how to approach them, what questions to ask
- How to do research using the web tools available (eReporter, gov, etc.)
- Common pitfalls and how to avoid them, and much more.
Presenter: Andrea Johanson, Ph.D, Senior Principal Consultant
