Each year, the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs award funding to assist with the development of startup projects. The award recipients not only make a difference in the lives of people with substance use disorders, but they also become a resource to other small businesses seeking to follow a similar path or those working in similar subject areas. To help identify past projects the NIH RePORTER database can be utilized to search the complete portfolio of NIDA-funded projects.
Information found within the NIH RePORTER database can be used to identify collaborators, experts in addiction science, as well as competing companies. Within the database, you can search for funding received by a specific principal investigator (PI) or company (organization). A screenshot of the NIH RePORTER homepage is included on this webpage and additional tips for conducting a search of this database as well as additional resources can be found below.
