The National Cancer Institute is committed to dramatically lessening the impact of cancer.
The Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Programs are NCI’s engine of innovation for developing and commercializing novel technologies and products to prevent, diagnose, and treat cancer.
The SBIR & STTR Programs are one of the largest sources of early-stage technology
financing in the United States. We welcome entrepreneurs and small business leaders
to this website to explore grant and contract funding opportunities and a new spirit
of collaboration with the NCI.
