NIGMS Hub Project

Funding Opportunity

We are excited to announce a new NIGMS funding opportunity through our NIGMS STTR Technology Transfer Accelerator Hub grant called “Southeast XLerator Network” (PI Ian McClure, UK Office of Technology Commercialization), aimed at supporting pilot projects to advance innovations by quickly and clearly demonstrating whether a technology or product is worthy of moving through the commercialization process. I2P ("Ideas to Products") is the name of the program.

Information outlining eligibility for funding, budget and duration, timeline, pre-application instructions, and objectives of the program can be found below. This funding program is not a traditional grant program, but instead, a funding mechanism focused on determining whether the technology or product has commercialization potential through business case milestones. 

This RFA is open to all faculty, staff or student innovators. Non-faculty applicants must identify an institutional faculty member who is willing to sponsor their application. Applications must focus on developing products that are intended for commercialization and have the potential to improve patient care or enhance human health.
