Speaker for "SBIR — Funding for Cancer"
The largest source of non-dilutive seed money for U.S. small businesses is the Federal Government’s Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program. Dedicated to bringing small business innovations from idea to market, the SBIR program at the National Cancer Institute (NCI) supports small businesses with funding, networking, and mentoring resources to help advance technologies that will improve the lives of patients with cancer and their caregivers. Kory Hallett, a Program Director at the NCI SBIR Development Center, will provide an overview of the SBIR and STTR programs at the National Cancer Institute and share tips on building a strong funding application.
