The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has just released the 2019 Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Omnibus Grant Solicitations! These solicitations will be used by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Note STTR is only available at NIH. Read more in NOT-OD-19-105: https://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-OD-19-105.html
The HHS SBIR and STTR Omnibus grant solicitations permit researcher-initiated topics around health, medicine and life science to be submitted for funding consideration. With any specific idea, you should speak directly with a HHS SBIR/STTR program manager at least a month BEFORE the deadline to gauge their interest.
NIH Matchmaker can be used to conduct keyword searches of a particular topic area to identify NIH Institutes or Centers (ICs) that have previously funded research in that area. Applicants can also search the 2019 Program Descriptions and Research Topicsdocument to identify priority research areas of ICs, or email firstname.lastname@example.org for an SBIR/STTR program manager referral. Standard Application Due Dates: September 5, 2019, January 6, 2020, and April 6, 2020 (since January and April 5, 2020 fall on a Sunday). An informational webinar will occur on Wednesday, May 29, 2019 at 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM EDT. Please register for the HHS SBIR/STTR PHS 2019-2 Grant Omnibus Webinar on May 29, 2019 at 1:00 PM EDT:
