A New Environment for Commercialization Funding: Update on the National Cancer Institute's SBIR/STTR Opportunities

 

Interested in learning more about Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs? 

Tuesday, September 24
Research Auditorium, North Campus Research Complex
4:00pm-5:30pm Session
5:30pm-6:30pm Networking

The SBIR Program funds early-stage research and development at small businesses. And a unique feature of the STTR Program is the requirement for the small business applicant organization to formally collaborate with a research institution in Phase I and Phase II. Both programs are the NIH’s engine of innovation for developing and commercializing novel technologies and products to prevent, diagnose, and treat human diseases.

At this FREE event you’ll hear more about…

  • cancer-focused federal funding for small businesses and faculty opportunities for NIH SBIR/STTR and contract funding opportunities from NCI
  • current and upcoming changes in NIH’s SBIR/STTR programs
  • practical strategies for developing successful proposals

Ming Zhao, PhD, Program Director, the National Cancer Institute’s SBIR Development Center
Jack Miner, Director, U-M Venture Center
