The NHLBI Office of Translational Alliances and Coordination (OTAC) helps to accelerate the translation of new discoveries into innovative biomedical products to prevent, diagnose, and treat heart, lung, and blood disorders. OTAC coordinates the NHLBI Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs, as well as two translational research initiatives directed at advancing new technologies from the university to the marketplace: the NIH Centers for Accelerated Innovations (NCAI) and the NIH Research Evaluation and Commercialization Hubs (REACH) programs.
