The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) invites applications for small business innovation research (SBIR) and small technology transfer research (STTR) grants. This announcement is made together with 34 other components of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and is supported by 2 funding mechanisms: SBIR and STTR.
The goals of the SBIR program are to stimulate technological innovation in the private sector; strengthen the role of small business in meeting federal research or research and development needs; increase the commercial application of federally supported research results; foster and encourage participation by socially and economically disadvantaged small business and women-owned business concerns; and improve the return on investment from federally funded research for economic and social benefits to the Nation. The STTR program is intended to stimulate a partnership of ideas and technologies between innovative small business concerns and research institutions through federally funded research or research and development.
For more information, potential applicants should contact Dr. Randall Stewart, Program Director, Channels, Synapses, and Circuits Cluster, NINDS; telephone: 301-496-1917; e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
