Enhancing the Development of New Technologies for Alzheimer’s and Other Aging-Related Diseases Through Small Business Support

Join the National Institutes of Health’s National Institute on Aging (NIA) Office of Small Business Research (OSBR) and University Lab Partners (ULP) on March 31 at 10 a.m. PT for a webinar on small business funding opportunities to advance your research and innovation to the commercialization stage.

Through the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs, NIA OSBR provides more than $100 million annually in set-aside, non-dilutive funding and resources to support small businesses looking to commercialize. The small business programs support eligible companies and entrepreneurs creating innovative therapeutics, devices, and diagnostics that address aging, aging-related diseases, and the special needs of older Americans.

The webinar will feature:

  • An overview of the SBIR and STTR programs and benefits of funding
