NIA SBIR/STTR Virtual Workshop: Understanding the NIH Peer-Review Process

November 10, 2020 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

What happens after submitting your application for Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) or Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) funding? It goes through NIH’s peer-review process, a thorough, time-tested system that identifies the most promising biomedical research ideas.

In this workshop, you’ll learn what reviewers look for in SBIR/STTR applications, the role of different reviewers, how to interpret your summary statement, and what to do if you have questions. Panelists will perform a mock review to give you an inside look at how peer researchers review NIH grant applications for scientific and technical merit. This virtual workshop is part of a series of online tutorials that assist entrepreneurial researchers, small businesses, and research organizations with their small business funding applications.

The session will feature:
• Overview of the NIH peer-review process
