The NHLBI Office of Translational Coordination and Alliances (OTAC) accelerates the transition of basic discoveries and innovations into new diagnostics, devices, and therapeutics. OTAC facilitates the NHLBI Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR and STTR) initiatives and other new and innovative programs. In addition, OTAC serves as a focal point for the extramural research community for information about the NHLBI small business technology development opportunities; facilitates strategic alliances between the federal and private sector stakeholders; and offers resources and expertise related to this goal. OTAC disseminates the NHLBI vision of strategic technology development to other NIH Institutes and Centers, Federal agencies, the small business and technology development communities, and private industry.
