Small Business Innovation Research Program Requests Proposals
National Cancer Institute
The Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program is soliciting contract proposals from small businesses as well as research institution staff scientists who are serving as consultants to small business. The proposals are being sought on a number of research topics, including "Synthesis Modules for Radiopharmaceutical Production" and "Targetry Systems for Production of Research Radionuclides."
The SBIR program provides support for research and development (R&D) of new or improved technologies and methodologies that have the potential to succeed as commercial products. The SBIR legislation requires the Public Health Service (PHS), Department of Health and Human Services, and certain other federal agencies to reserve 2.5 percent of their extramural research or R&D budgets for an SBIR program.
