Noon in AZ (3PM EST)




The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI), the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB), and the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS) announce a new program that aims to support multidisciplinary small business teams in the development of complex, three-dimensional engineering systems for growing heart, lung, or bone marrow tissue.

Ultimately, bioreactor designs should provide the most physiologically relevant environment to promote correct 3-dimensional tissue growth and maintenance, which is also efficient, safe and economical.  Such devices should be made commercially available and widely disseminated to researchers for application in the translational setting.


This new Bioreactors for Reparative Medicine opportunity is offered through the:


Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) mechanism (R43/R44)

  • Phase I, Phase II, and Fast Track options—RFA-HL-15-008—next due date 10/10/14
  • Direct to Phase II—RFA-HL-15-017—next due date 10/14/15


Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) mechanism (R41/R42)

  • Phase I, Phase II, and Fast Track options—RFA-HL-15-004—next due date 10/10/14

The NHLBI SBIR/STTR Programs provide support for small businesses developing and commercializing novel technologies and products to promote the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of heart, lung, blood, and sleep diseases and disorders. The NHLBI provides grant and contract funding for research and development of technologies related to the mission of NHLBI.
