Join SBIR consultant Kristen Parmelee and the FAST (Federal and State Technology) Center of Illinois for an SBIR 101 event focused on various elements of an NIH SBIR/STTR Proposal. This is a high-level overview of all of the required sections for an NIH Phase I, breaking down each major section required for the narrative portions.  Topics will include an in-depth discussion of the Specific Aims and Research Strategy and an overview of other supporting documents (biosketch, human subjects, vertebrate animals, budgets, abstract, etc.). 

After a presentation from Kristen Parmelee, teams will have the opportunity to ask questions from the FAST team.

This program is open to all entrepreneurs in the State of Illinois seeking to access SBIR/STTR grant funding. 

The Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs are highly competitive programs that encourage domestic small businesses to engage in Federal Research/Research and Development (R/R&D) with the potential for commercialization. Through a competitive awards-based program, SBIR and STTR enable small businesses to explore their technological potential and provide the incentive to profit from its commercialization. By including qualified small businesses in the nation's R&D arena, high-tech innovation is stimulated, and the United States gains entrepreneurial spirit as it meets its specific research and development needs.
