Charting Your Small Business ’ Course with NIH
At NIH, we maintain a broad and diverse portfolio of biomedical and behavioral research. To turn discovery into health, promising technologies must move from the laboratory into clinical trials, into the marketplace, into the doctor’s office, and into our every-day lives. A key way to transition promising technologies out of the laboratory is through the commercialization process. Small businesses help to achieve this commercialization goal. By strategically aligning research resources in academic settings with the dedicated funding for small businesses that Congress established decades ago, NIH can reduce the barrie...
