NINDS encourages small business research grant applications on manufacturing processes of medical, dental, and biological technologies. This announcement is made together with 14 other NIH components and is supported by 2 funding mechanisms: R43/R44 and R41/R42.
New methods, procedures, measures, and controls are needed for manufacturing a broad range of biomedical technologies and products with unsurpassed quality and to lower manufacturing costs for existing and new processes. Research also is encouraged that can contribute to the containment and reduction of health care costs and that can improve the cost effectiveness, quality, and accessibility of the health care system.
