Big Bucks for Small Business


Sure, the NIH is the leading player in funding academic and other nonprofit-based research. But with its Small Business Innovation Research program dedicating more than $500 million annually, the agency is no slouch in funding the private sector as well. For this chart, Genome Technology combed through the most recent SBIR (and related STTR, or Small Business Technology Transfer) awards to find out where NIH is targeting its dollars. We looked for the largest grants given to proposals that were obviously related to genomics, proteomics, or other components of systems biology. This list is not meant to be comprehensive, but rather to provide a glimpse of the cutting-edge, private-sector research NIH is supporting in this area.
