Workshop: SBIR/STTR Funding For Life Sciences

Presented by:  Center for Technology Commercialization, Wisconsin Entrepreneurs' Network
Location:  MG&E Innovation Center, Room 50   (510 Charmany Drive, Madison)
Time: 9:30am-12:30pm

Over $2.5 billion is available annually in federal Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR)/Small Technology Transfer Research (STTR) programs to fund commercialization of high risk, innovative research. Learn how to access federal funding opportunities through the National Institutes of Health (NIH), which has the second largest amount of SBIR/STTR funding.

  • You will have a rare opportunity to hear and meet with NIH Program Director, Dr. Patricia Weber, presenting essential information about how to succeed at obtaining NIH SBIR/STTR funding to commercialize your research.
  • You will also learn how to access the Center for Technology and Wisconsin Entrepreneurs’ Network commercialization assistance packages including hands on assistance and micro-grant funding supporting you in preparing your proposal.
  • Successful awardees will share best practices.
  • And, you can sign up for a one-on-one meeting with Dr. Weber later that afternoon. Please contact Program Manager Idella Yamben at to sign up for a one-on-one meeting

Who Should Attend?

  • Life science entrepreneurs and small companies seeking funding for innovative R&D with an interest in submitting an NIH SBIR/STTR proposal
  • Faculty members, graduate students and post docs who are interested in learning about this transitional funding mode to advance your research towards commercialization.
