The NCI SBIR Development Center is excited to announce the application period opening for the SBIR Innovative Concept Award!

This funding mechanism was developed for small businesses that are developing highly innovative and out-of-the-box technologies with the potential to create new scientific paradigms through novel and enhanced approaches to considerably improve cancer research, prevention, detection and care in pediatric and/or rare cancers.  Applications focusing on rare cancers with a 5-year survival rate of less than 50% are especially encouraged for this solicitation.

Join us on March 31, 2022 for an informational webinar for this funding opportunity to learn more about how the SBIR Concept Award can make a difference during your commercialization journey.

Interested small business offerors are requested to indicate their intent to propose by submitting a White Paper by May 2, 2022. This will allow the NCI to provide feedback on whether or not the proposed idea falls within the scope of what this solicitation is seeking.

Responses to this solicitation are due by August 22, 2022, 5 p.m. ET. For more information about this program, please contact Cherie Wells ([email protected]).
