To better serve small business community needs, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has changed its Standard Due Dates for SBIR/STTR Omnibus grant applications. These changes will reduce the average amount of time it takes to review and fund successful applications. The most immediate change is that NIH has extended the final 2014 SBIR and STTR Omnibus Solicitation deadline to April 6, 2015.
Learn more about the SBIR and STTR funding opportunity deadlines and changes in the NIH Guide.
Staff members at NCATS (and other NIH Institutes and Centers) are available to discuss small business funding opportunities, changes to the application process and upcoming deadlines. Contact the NCATS small business team at NCATS-SBIRSTTR@mail.nih.gov.
NCATS’ SBIR and STTR programs are engines of innovation for developing and commercializing tools, technologies and intervention platforms to support the creation of new therapeutics and diagnostics, especially for rare and neglected diseases. SBIR and STTR are government set-aside programs for domestic small businesses to engage in research and development that has the potential for commercialization and public benefit.
