SBIR / STTR Program Mission
Supporting scientific excellence and
technological innovation through the investment
of federal research funds in critical American
priorities to build a strong national economy
one small business at a time.

Program Descriptions and Goals
  • Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR)

Set-aside program for small business concerns to
engage in federal RD -- with potential for
commercialization.
  • Stimulate technological innovation
  • Meet Federal RD needs

2.5
  • Foster and encourage participation by minorities
    and disadvantaged persons in technological
    innovation
  • Increase private-sector commercialization of
    innovations derived from Federal RD

Program Descriptions and Goals
  • Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR)

Set-aside program to facilitate cooperative RD
between small business concerns and U.S. research
institutions -- with potential for
commercialization.
  • Stimulate and foster scientific and technological
    innovation through cooperative research

AN ADDED DIMENSION TO THE NIH CULTURE
The National Institutes of Health needs to work
much more closely with industry to find cures for
disease and improve global health and will
aggressively seek out partnerships with private
companies. -- Dr. Elias Zerhouni

New Public Access Policyto Publications
Resulting from NIH-funded Research
  • NIH-funded investigators are requested to submit
    to the NIH National Library of Medicine's (NLM)
    PubMed Central (PMC) an electronic version of the
    author's final manuscript upon acceptance for
    publication, resulting from research supported,
    in whole or in part, with direct costs from NIH.

Effective May 2, 2005
NIH Guide, February 3, 2005 http//grants1.nih.gov
/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-OD-05-022.html
30
Why Public Access?
  • ACCESS Provide electronic access to NIH-funded
    research publications for patients, families,
    health professionals, teachers, and students.
  • ARCHIVE Keep a central archive of NIH-funded
    research publicationsfor now and in the future,
    preserving vital medical research results and
    information for years to come.
  • ADVANCE SCIENCE Create an information resource
    that will make it easier for scientists to mine
    medical research publications, and for NIH to
    better manage its entire research investment.

31
What to Submit for the Public Access Policy
  • The Policy applies to peer-reviewed, original
    research publications that have been supported in
    whole or in part with direct costs from NIH. It
    does not apply to book chapters, editorials,
    reviews, or conference proceedings.
  • The Policy applies to all research grant and
    career development award mechanisms, cooperative
    agreements, contracts, Institutional and
    Individual Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research
    Service Awards, as well as NIH intramural
    research studies.
  • NIH is requesting that authors submit manuscripts
    resulting from
  • currently funded NIH research projects or
  • previously supported NIH research projects where
    manuscripts were accepted for publication on or
    after May 2, 2005.
  • Publications resulting from non-NIH-supported
    research projects should not be submitted.

32
NIH SBIR/STTR ProgramReminders
  • Similar, Essentially Identical or Identical
    Applications to NIH awarding components (ICs) NOT
    allowed
  • Submission Dates Postmark Date acceptable for
    applications submitted in response to PHS 2005-2
  • Dun and Bradstreet (DB) Data Universal Numbering
    System (DUNS) number is required
  • Type 2 Competing Continuation Ph II Awards

Types of SBIR / STTR Awards
  • GRANTS You decide the research and product to be
    designed or developed (SBIR / STTR)
  • CONTRACTS The government decides the research
    and general product to fill their perceived need
    (SBIR only)
  • COOPERATIVE AGREEMENTS Similar to grants, but
    awarding IC has substantial involvement in
    carrying out the project's activities.

CommercializationA Magic Formula?
  • Phase I Phase II Phase III
  • Typical for SBIR/STTR Projects that do not
    require clinical evaluation
  • Phase I Phase II ? Phase III
  • Typical for SBIR/STTR Projects that require
    clinical evaluation and FDA approval

70
Commercialization Issues
  • Phase II to Phase III Pier or Mountain?
  • Clinical evaluation and FDA approvals
  • cGMP and GLP Facilities
  • Partnerships and Strategic Alliances
  • Drugs and Biologics require vast amounts of time
    and
  • Average of 8.5 years
  • (lab research/animal testing to clinical
    trials)
  • Average of 1.6M
