Early–Stage Capital for Technology Commercialization: NIH SBIR/STTR Programs

Join us for a talk about the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), which are among the largest sources of early-stage, non-dilutive capital for technology commercialization in the United States.

Presented by Jennifer Shieh, PhD, Small Business Coordinator and Program Director, Office of Translational Alliances and Coordination, National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI), National Institutes of Health.

After her talk, Dr. Shieh will hold one-on-one meetings, to address specific questions. The number of spots for 1-on-1 meetings is limited. You must sign up in advance for one-on-one meetings at the link below.

All interested individuals from the greater Sacramento area and beyond are invited to attend: faculty, postdoctoral fellows, researchers, students, entrepreneurs, small business executives, and others who might benefit from learning about the NIH SBIR and STTR programs.

By attending the presentation, you will:

— Learn about NIH funding & support to get your innovative research out of the lab and into patients
