Medical Device Funding and Resources to Jump Start Your Company

Dr. Chris Sasiela gave you a gift at this year’s 10x Medical Device Conference: A list of resources from the National Institute of Health (NIH) and their Small Business and Innovative Research (SBIR) program you may have overlooked.

NIH resources are extensive and include:

• $100 million in grants each year for small business research from the NHLBI (National Heart, Lungs, and Blood Institute)
• $800 million across all the divisions of the NIH annually
• Advisors specializing in regulatory, small business, business development, investments, entrepreneurship, and many types of scientific advisors
• A clinical specimen and data repository where you can leverage their clinical studies to validate your diagnostic
• A video library including one clip about how to write an effective grant
• Innovations created in academic labs that you might be able to incorporate into your company
• Innovation conferences where they put you in front of a room of investors plus partnering with other forums
