The National Cancer Institute’s Small Business Innovation Research (NCI SBIR) Development Center is hosting a special introductory information session for NCI-designated cancer centers.

As the institute’s engine for innovation, the NCI SBIR Development Center provides funding, mentoring, and networking support for cancer researchers at or working with small businesses. We invite all innovators developing cancer technologies with an interest in commercialization to attend our in-depth information session.

Michael Weingarten, Director, NCI SBIR Development Center

This webinar will cover topics including:

  • Introduction to SBIR program at the NCI
  • Funding opportunities
  • Commercialization resources
  • Application tips
  • Q&A breakout session from 2:00 – 2:30 p.m. EDT

Following the one-hour webinar, we are planning to breakout into smaller groups with NCI SBIR program staff to answer any questions that were not addressed during the Q&A part of the webinar. In addition to the breakout session, we will be happy to set up separate calls with individual researchers to discuss opportunities, eligibility, and more.
