This PA invites research applications to develop innovative instrumentation to maximize the efficiency and augment the capabilities of molecular library high throughput screening systems. Applications in response to this PA should propose development of instrumentation suitable for integration into large high throughput screening operations and compatible with scalable approaches to chemical genomics research. This announcement is a NIH Roadmap-related activity and was developed by the Roadmap Molecular Libraries and Imaging Implementation Group. This PA will utilize the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) mechanisms, and accompanies a Request for Applications of similar scientific intent (RFA RM-04-020) that will utilize the traditional research project grant (R01) mechanism. That RFA is a component of the NIH Roadmap (http://nihroadmap.nih.gov) Molecular Libraries and Imaging Initiative. Budgets up !
to $ 200,000 total costs per year and time periods up to 2 years for Phase I may be requested. Budgets up to $ 400,000 total costs per year and up to 2 years may be requested for Phase II. No funds have been specifically set aside for this program; the number of awards and the amount of funds provided for awards have not been predetermined. Eligibility requirements are described in the SBIR/STTR Omnibus Solicitation. Only small business concerns are eligible to submit applications. Any individual with the skills, knowledge, and resources necessary to carry out the proposed research is invited to work with their institution to develop an application for support, in accordance with SBIR/STTR institutional requirements.
Who can apply:
Private Institutions Of Higher Education
Small Business (Less Than 500 Employees
Eligible functional categories:
Human Genome Research
Mental Health Research Grants
