 SBIR/STTR Program Mission


Supporting scientific excellence and
technological innovation through the
investment of federal research funds in
critical American priorities to build a strong
national economy…




…one small business at a time.

SBIR/STTR Helps NIH Meet Its Mission

Conduct innovative R&D that results in
 product, process, or service that will...
      Improve human health

      Speed process of discovery
      Reduce cost of medical care/cost of
      research
      Improve research tools

   Why are SBIR and STTR programs important
                  to NCRR Researchers?

 NCRR provides clinical and translational researchers
 with the training and tools they need to understand,
 detect, treat, and prevent a wide range of diseases
 SBIR and STTR
   • an excellent resource for enabling commercialization of innovative
     high impact technologies essential for clinical and translational
     research, such as:
       research tools, medical devices, therapeutics

   • provide incentive to academic investigators to translate
     technology (form new company or collaborate with existing)
   • a large source of early-stage life sciences R&D financing

                                                                          NCRR

Program Descriptions

Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR)
       Set-aside program for small business
2.5%
       concerns to engage in federal R&D --
       with potential for commercialization.


Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR)
0.3%    Set-aside program to facilitate cooperative
        R&D between small business concerns
        and U.S. research institutions -- with
        potential for commercialization.              NCRR

Keys to a Strong Application

 Significant, innovative, and focused science
 Significant product and/or commercial potential
   • A product-focused application is more likely to have
     support of business reviewers
   • A project with sound financial projections is more likely
     to attract a partner
 Translational research/clinical applications projects should
  involve the appropriate collaborators
   • Clinical investigator in appropriate specialty
   • Statisticians
   • …
