NIH Updates Solicitation for SBIR/STTR Grant Applications

Contributor: Catherine Sprankle, NICEATM

The NIH has updated the solicitation announcement for Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) grant applications. The NIEHS section has been updated to include a section on “Toxicity Screening, Testing, and Modeling,” which states an interest in “technologies to improve predictivity in toxicology testing to support the goals and initiatives of Tox21.” Specific technologies of interest include (1) physiologically relevant cell-based systems or phylogenetically lower order animal models for toxicity screening, (2) computational approaches for predictive toxicology, and (3) other technologies for enhanced toxicity testing including high-throughput measurement of gene expression, improved methods for fixing and preserving tissues, and real-time in vivo detection of oxygen radicals. The next deadline for applying for SBIR and STTR grants is September 5.
