Direct Phase II SBIR Grants to Support Biomedical Technology Development

Apply through PAR-14-088  by April 5, 2016

Notice Clarifying SBIR Direct-to-Phase II Eligibility Criteria: NOT-OD-HL-16-052

The NIH Direct-to-Phase II program will accept Phase II submissions regardless of the funding source for the Phase I-like proof of principle work on which the proposed Phase II research is based.

The Direct-to-Phase-II SBIR mechanism eliminates the need for the SBCs to propose additional small feasibility studies, if the technology is ready for the Phase II stage of development. The Direct-to-Phase II authority is not available to the STTR program.

If you’re interested in the Direct-to-Phase II program, check out what to include in your 12 page Commercialization Plan (in the SF424 application guide , pg I-129) and take a look at our presentation on “Writing Your Phase II Commercialization Plan”.

The next SBIR/STTR Omnibus Solicitation Deadline is April 5, 2016
