NINDS Neuroscience Funding Announcements



Bioengineering Nanotechnology Initiative (STTR) and (SBIR)

Funding Contact: NINDS Funding Coordinator
Funding Categories: Repair and Plasticity, Small Business

Brief Description:

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA), issued as an initiative of the trans-NIH Bioengineering Consortium (BECON) on behalf of the participating Institutes and Centers, invites Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) grant applications for projects for developing and applying nanotechnology to biomedicine. Nanotechnology is defined as the creation of functional materials, devices and systems through control of matter at the scale of 1 to 100 nanometers, and the exploitation of novel properties and phenomena at the same scale. Nanotechnology is emerging as a field critical for enabling essential breakthroughs that may have tremendous potential for affecting biomedicine. Moreover, nanotechnologies developed in the next several years may well form the foundation of significant commercial platforms that shift the paradigms of clinical applications.
