Meet With… National Cancer Institute
Program Director Dr. Xing-Jian Lou will present and discuss the SBIR and STTR programs that fund and support small biomedical technology companies.
During this session, she will provide an update on funding opportunities available to small businesses as well as tips on strengthening your application. The SBIR program helps fill the gap in the availability of early stage funding created when investors and strategic partners move towards clinical-stage investments. SBIR funds serve as a key bridge between initial angel funding and more significant angel capital, venture capital, or strategic partnerships.
Additionally, the presentation will provide valuable information on NCI’s other initiatives including the NCI SBIR Bridge Award, the NCI SBIR Investor Forum, and I-Corps(tm) at NIH. Get all of your questions answered during the Q&A session following the presentation and apply to meet one-on-one with Dr. Lou.
