NCI Office of Cancer Centers (OCC) Learning Series

Bringing Science to the Marketplace:
The NCI SBIR Program

September 8th, 2011
2:00 to 3:30 PM EDT

National Cancer Institute’s Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Programs are two of the largest sources of early-stage technology financing in the United States.

During this webinar, NCI SBIR Development Center leaders will discuss new and existing initiatives to help small businesses further commercialize their innovations, including funding opportunities such as the SBIR Phase I, Phase II, and Phase II Bridge Award, and the recently launched Regulatory Assistance Program.

Additionally, an SBIR grantee will share how he strategically leveraged the SBIR Program to help raise additional investor funding and advanced his company’s cancer technology to the next stage of development.
