Our Events » Driving Alzheimer’s and Aging-Related Innovations through Small Business Funding


Join the NIA for a webinar on small business funding opportunities to advance your research to commercialization.

Join the National Institutes of Health’s National Institute on Aging (NIA) Office of Small Business Research (OSBR), the University of Pittsburgh Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center, and the University of Pennsylvania Alzheimer’s Disease Core Center on September 23 at 2:00 p.m. ET for a webinar on small business funding opportunities to advance your research to commercialization. Stephanie Davis, Ph.D., OSBR program manager, will provide an overview of the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs, guidance on drafting a competitive application, and additional resources for advancing your research.

Through the SBIR and 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 technologies. 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.

We invite entrepreneurial researchers, small businesses, and research organizations to learn how to tap into NIA’s SBIR/STTR programs, which can help accelerate research on innovations in Alzheimer’s disease (AD), AD-related dementias, and other diseases of aging.

Who should attend? 

Individuals from the following groups are encouraged to attend: 

  • Small biotech and/or health care technology businesses
  • Academic researchers
  • Technology transfer organizations
  • Entrepreneurs from women-owned and socially and economically disadvantaged (8a) small businesses
