Support for Small Businesses

Premium

If you’ve been hearing more than usual about Small Business Innovation Research programs lately, it’s likely because a recent change disqualified companies with a significant proportion of venture backing from winning these funds — and that has BIO and other industry organizations up in arms. To find out just how much these grants are playing a role in this field, GT checked into SBIR funding awards from the 2007 fiscal year.

For this listing, GT culled the database to find phase I grants most obviously supporting genomics, proteomics, and related areas. The list below represents the largest grants, and is by no means comprehensive.
