NIH R&D & SBIR Proposal Submission Workshops
July 15, 2009

This two part session presents an overview of the various types of R&D funding available from NIH and how to make NIH grant proposals more competitive. NIH funds all sorts of technology development – much more than just plastic gloves, drugs and beakers! The breadth and depth of technologies funded by NIH is wide and deep. A new Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) at NIH gives preference to those who have not received NIH SBIR/STTR previously. This all means that there a lots of opportunities! Come to this special session and learn how your company can work with NIH.
