In order to maximize your funding potential, all sources of funding must be considered, including the less traditional ones.
The NIH’s R21 mechanism aims to fund very early stage proof of concept type programs of up to 2 years at about $300,000, whereas the R01 mechanism is more suitable for longer programs of up to 5 years, totaling close to $3,000,000. Other agencies such as the Department of Defense, BARDA, FDA, and NSF also have awards for research in the life sciences.
In this webinar, we share insight into alternatives to the classic SBIR/STTR mechanisms. We will discuss methodology for establishing both responsiveness as well as competitiveness and how to increase chances for award.
