In a world in which both medical diagnostics and therapies are shifting towards minimally invasive technologies, it is not surprising that steadily increasing non-dilutive funding is available for innovative medical device companies.

The scope of funding support covers the entire R&D cycle, from early stage exploratory and discovery work all the way to late stage clinical research and validation.

In this webinar, FreeMind experts discuss the latest trends at the NIH and the funding opportunities available with respect to medical devices.

Non-US applicants are eligible for the majority of the non-dilutive pockets of money including NIH, Department of Defense, BARDA etc. Currently, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) are actively funding over 1000 projects in the excess of $1.3B, taking place outside the US and awarded to non-US applicant organizations. And, when taking into account collaborations and partnerships between domestic and foreign entities, the funded R&D dollars outside the US even exceed the above.

In this presentation, we provide insight into the non-dilutive funding landscape with an emphasis on the NIH, Department of Defense and other government agencies. FreeMind experts will describe the various pockets of money available for non-US applicants, potential for funding, and means to maximize chances for award.

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.
