Multidisciplinary grants and contracts available for pre-clinical as well as clinical stage research with budgets of $10 million - $150 million per project
Small Business Research and Development grants can be budgeted $150,000 for SBIR/STTR Phase I awards and up to $2 million for SBIR/STTR Phase II awards.

This step is designed to provide a robust, long-term, multi-submission strategy for each pipeline project. FreeMind is well versed in the interests, goals and agendas of each NIH Institute. We review the suitability of a proposed project, taking into consideration the significance to public health, innovative factor, strength of research approach, and specific concerns regarding the nature of the project
First, we outline the specific aims and scope of work. Next, the size of the budget is set, and collaborators, subcontractors, and consultants needed for a complete and rounded project are delineated. We devise a timeline and an orderly division of responsibilities in order to facilitate a timely and thorough completion of tasks
Project managers draft comprehensive templates. From this point, the writing effort is combined and is largely based on on-going feedback, comments and edits inserted by the project managers and in response to portions implemented by the client. The iterative review concludes when a well structured scientifically sound application with all items accounted for materializes.
After extensive editing and formatting, the application is ready for submission. Post-submission, project managers track the application and when applicable assists in the award negotiation phase. FreeMind closely follows all deadlines for supplementary data, study section reviews, and final decision by the granting agency
