Exploratory Clinical Trials for Small Business Grant Program

by:

The National Institutes of Health, more commonly known as NIH, is a federal government agency operating within the United States Department of Health and Human Services that is primarily accountable for ensuring and supporting all of the nation's biomedical and health-related research studies.

The grants and programs of the NIH are all designed to contribute to the realization of its overall agency mission which is to "seek fundamental knowledge about the nature and behavior of living systems and the application of that knowledge to enhance health, lengthen life, and reduce the burdens of illness and disability."

In keeping with this mission, the National Institutes of Health has formed a partnership with the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) in order to establish the Exploratory Clinical Trials for Small Business Grant Program wherein they aim to establish a vehicle for Small Business Concerns (SBCs) in the process of submitting Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) grant applications for exploratory clinical trials directly to the NINDS.

The NIH and NINDS has stipulated that the trials and research studies that will be funded under this program are those that are concentrating on products that are associated to the goals and missions of the NINDS, such as an evaluation of drugs, biologics, devices, or diagnostics, and even surgical, behavioral or rehabilitation therapies.

Essentially, the Exploratory Clinical Trials for Small Business Grant Program has been established to help alleviate or eradicate the burden that is experienced by people who are suffering from neurological disorders.   (continued...)
