Additional Informational Resources
- General SBIR/STTR Resources: provides key information about the NIH SBIR/STTR programs.
- Clinical and Translational Science Awards: provides access to clinical and translational researchers.
- National Disease Research Interchange: provides human tissues and organs to NIH-funded and university-based investigators.
- National Cooperative Drug Discovery/ Development Groups (NCDDG) for the Treatment of Mental Disorders, Drug or Alcohol Addiction (UM1): This is a non-SBIR funding opportunity that creates multidisciplinary research groups or partnerships for the discovery of pharmacological agents to treat and to study mental illness, drug or alcohol addiction.
- Note: It is expected that small businesses who have received many SBIR grants, have made significant effort to commercialize their previously supported technologies. Small businesses that are primarily interested in research and development (and not commercialization) should consider other grant mechanisms at NIH, rather than the SBIR program. NIMH program staff can help identify the most appropriate grant mechanism to use.
- The National Institute of Standards and Technology’s Hollings Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP): provides technical support for manufacturing practices from innovation strategies to process improvements to green manufacturing.
- Google and the Small Business Administration have partnered to educate local businesses about how to succeed online. Check out their Tools for Online Success .
