Blood Diseases and Resources Research - #93.839

Grants may support salaries, equipment, supplies, travel, and patient hospitalization as required to perform the research effort. Restrictions or limitations are imposed against the use of funds for entertainment, foreign travel, general-purpose equipment, alterations and renovations, and other items not regularly required for the performance of research. National Research Service Awards (NRSAs) are made directly to individuals for research training. Grants may be made to institutions to enable them to make NRSAs to individuals selected by them. Certain service and payback provisions apply to individuals upon termination of the award. SBIR Phase I grants (of approximately 6-months' duration) are to establish the technical merit and feasibility of a proposed research effort that may lead to a commercial product or process. Phase II grants are for the continuation of the research initiated in Phase I and which are likely to result in commercial products or processes. Only Phase I awardees are eligible to apply for Phase II support. STTR Phase I grants (normally of 1-year duration) are to determine the scientific, technical, and commercial merit and feasibility of the proposed cooperative effort that has potential for commercial application. These awards are made to small businesses working in collaboration with academic institutions. Phase II funding is based on results of research initiated in Phase I and scientific and technical merit and commercial potential on Phase II application. While the intent of the SBIR/STTR programs is commercialization (Phase III), no SBIR/STTR funds are allowed for commercialization activities such as patents; market and sales; market research; business development/product development/market plans; legal fees, travel and other costs including labor relating to license agreements and partnerships.
