About Our Webinar Partner: NINDS Small Business Program

The small business program at NINDS is used to achieve the mission of the Institute by supporting innovative ideas at different stages of development, including applied bench research, translational research, and early-stage clinical trials. While NINDS has specific funding opportunities, many of our applications are investigator-initiated and come in through the general NIH SBIR and STTR Omnibus solicitations.
