On Friday the NIH announced the reissue of three funding opportunities applicable to the SBIR community.
- RFA-ES-005 solicits Phase II SBIR applications for the development of environmental sensors for personal exposure assessment.
- PA-09-113 encourages Phase I SBIR applications for the development of technologies related to advanced processing, manufacturing processes, equipment and systems, and manufacturing workforce skills and protection. PA-09-114 is the STTR counterpart.
- PA-09-115 is targeted toward applications that require a longer award period and larger award amount. Specifically technologies that will require FDA approval such a vaccine, biologic or drug delivery system. PA-09-116 is the STTR counterpart.
The first two opportunities highlight interest by the NIH in applications outside of traditional life science. If you are in the business of sensor development or manufacturing processes you may have a technology eligible for funding.

but there are many ways to disguise a good one.”
