16th Annual NIH SBIR/STTR Conference


Registration for the National Institutes of Health 16th Annual SBIR/STTR Conference, Land of Achievement: Extending the Reach of Science, is now open! As you may already know, the UNM Health Sciences Center is hosting this national conference in Albuquerque from October 21-23, 2014.

The NIH Small Business Innovation Research and Small Business Technology Transfer (SBIR/STTR) programs award more than $750 million annually to advance health sciences technologies and bridge the gap between basic science ans translation of science discoveries into tangible products and services. SBIR/STTR encourages collaborations between academic researchers and the private sector, promoting transformative medical therapies and health care delivery innovations.

This Conference, only the third to be held outside of NIH headquarters in Bethesda, MD, is an extraordinary opportunity to showcase UNM HSC's diverse and thriving research enterprise and partnerships with our state's growing technology sector. We anticipate 400-500 attendees from around the country, including researchers, NIH program officers, small business entrepreneurs and company representatives.
