Advancing laboratory discoveries through the translational science process is critical to developing innovations that can improve public health, but too often there are barriers, such as insufficient funding and related support, that make these innovations difficult to move forward. Through the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences’ (NCATS) Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programsbiochemist and molecular biologist entrepreneurs may find what they need to advance their research toward commercialization.
