Join our team of SBIR experts and the FAST (Federal and State Technology) Center of Illinois for an SBIR/STTR webinar event from 1:00-2:00pm on Tuesday, January 24.
Did you know, in addition to requesting assignment to a particular Institute or Center at NIH, you can request your proposal be assigned and reviewed by a particular study section? NIH utilizes a peer-review process. Learn more about this process including how to review and select requested study sections, the scoring process, and interpreting your scores. We will also cover next steps after you receive your score, which is most often, a resubmission.
Our presenter will be Kristen (Kris) Parmelee of the Parmelee Consulting Group, Inc., a member of the Illinois FAST Center consultant team. Kris is a proud graduate of Indiana University’s School of Public and Environmental Affairs (SPEA). She started her career at an Indianapolis-based nonprofit in program development and management. After gaining initial experience in fund raising, Kris launched her own venture in 2000 with a focus on private foundation and federal grants. In 2005, she expanded her experience to include SBIR/STTR and for the past five years, has focused almost exclusively on SBIR/STTR and project management services.
This is a free, virtual event, but registration is required. The link to the webinar will be emailed to you upon completion of your registration.
After the presentation, teams will have the opportunity to ask questions from the FAST team.
Office Hours are also available weekly.

The Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs are highly competitive programs that encourage domestic small businesses to engage in Federal Research/Research and Development (R/R&D) with the potential for commercialization. Through a competitive awards-based program, SBIR and STTR enable small businesses to explore their technological potential and provide the incentive to profit from its commercialization. By including qualified small businesses in the nation's R&D arena, high-tech innovation is stimulated, and the United States gains entrepreneurial spirit as it meets its specific research and development needs.
