The National Cancer Institute Small Business Innovation Research (NCI SBIR) Development Center will be hosting an informative workshop on Federal Resources to Accelerate Commercialization (FRAC) on May 24 – 25, 2016 at NCI’s Shady Grove Campus in Rockville, MD. The workshop aims to provide current SBIR/STTR awardees with valuable information and access to both federal and local resources that could ultimately help advance their cancer technologies to the market. In addition to multiple in-depth learning sessions with expert speakers, attendees will have a chance to engage in 1:1 conversations with NCI SBIR Program Directors, as well as speakers including representatives from the FDA, NSF, CDMRP and other NIH funding/resource programs.
The FRAC Workshop is an exclusive event for all current NCI SBIR/STTR awardees (up to 2 attendees per company). Registration is free but attendees are responsible for travel and accommodations expense. Early registration is recommended as 1:1 sessions with organization representatives are offered on first-come-first-serve basis.
