NIA Small Business Programs (SBIR & STTR)
Funding Innovation for Healthy Aging
Support is available to help turn your ideas into reality—and help Americans live longer, healthier lives! The NIA Office of Small Business Research (OSBR) helps small businesses and research organizations bring innovative treatments and technologies to market through funding awards, training opportunities, and other support.
The NIA Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer Programs (STTR) offer non-dilutive, no-strings-attached funding up to $2.5 million (depending on funding opportunity) to commercialize products addressing aging and aging-related diseases and conditions, Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias, and the special challenges and needs of older Americans.
