Program Descriptions

Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR)

Set-aside program for small business

concerns to engage in federal R&D --

with potential for commercialization.

Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR)

Set-aside program to facilitate cooperative

R&D between small business concerns and U.S. research institutions -- with

potential for commercialization.

Why sbir l.jpg
WHY SBIR????

Small Business Innovation Development Act of 1982

Congress designated 4 major goals

  • Stimulate technological innovation

  • Use small business to meet federal R&D needs

  • Foster and encourage participation by minorities and disadvantaged persons in technological innovation

  • Increase private-sector commercialization innovations derived from federal R&D

    Advice from Awardees

    • Don’t judge an agency’s interests by

      its “name ”

    • Understand agency’s mission & needs

    • Get to know your agency Program

      Manager

    • Read solicitation and follow

      instructions

    Advice from Awardees

    • Don’t depend solely on SBIR funding

    • Don’t go it alone - use support systems

    • Have an outcome

    • Win or lose - get and review evaluations

    • Be PERSISTENT

    Types of sbir sttr awards l.jpg
    Types of SBIR / STTR Awards research,

    ~95%

    • 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.

    Example of an NIH SBIR research, Fast Track GranteeSyntrix BiosystemsAuburn, WA

    Product:Instrumentation for High-Resolution Analysis of Cancer

    Technology:Develop a method for tissue microdissection called "biolithography." This method relies on a projected light pattern and suitable reagents to extract regions of interest from a tissue sample for further analysis.

    Fast-Track award = $2.2 Million (Phase I and Phase II, multi-year)

    Funded under a special SBIR announcement: PAR-01-105, "Innovative Technologies for the Molecular Analysis of Cancer“

    SBIR funding was critical in establishing the feasibilityof developinga prototype automated biolithography system provide an easy and cost-effective method to address whole organism analysis for a wide audience of researchers and clinicians engaged in cancer analysis.

    NovaRx (CA)

    • Product: Vaccine for Glioma (Brain Cancer)

    • NovaRx uses two technologies:

    • 1) TGF-ß antisense gene-modification. TGF-ß is one of the most potent immunosuppressive molecules produced by tumor cells.

    • Patented TGF-ß antisense technology blocks the production of TGF-Beta by the cancer cells.

    • 2) Replaces autologous tumor cells with allogeneic tumor cells (other peoples tumor cells) that may be used "off the shelf" to treat a large number of patients

    • SBIR award (4 years) will help fund pivotal Phase II/III clinical trial.

    • SBIR funding was critical in establishing the feasibility of developing a whole-cell vaccine for the treatment of gliomas.
