  • ORED hosts workshop on federal funding opportunities for

    academic innovators and entrepreneurs

    March 2016 Issue

    On February 22, ORED hosted a highly- anticipated half-day workshop for academic innovators and entrepreneurs. Approximately 70 people attended the “standing room only” event. Faculty from FIU were joined by their colleagues at the University of Miami, staff from Nicklaus Children’s Hospital, managers from regional scientific institutes, and repre- sentatives from technology-based companies as they engaged with leaders from the Offices of Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Trans- fer (STTR) at three institutes of the National Institutes of Health. Each NIH program officer discussed valuable resources available to researchers and small business owners, including institute-specific funding opportuni- ties, and answered questions. Two additional experts from South Florida shared infor- mation on local and regional resources availa- ble to support commercialization ven- tures. In the afternoon, 19 FIU faculty mem- bers met individually with the pertinent NIH

    visitors to discuss the potential commercial val- ue of his or her research activity.

    Distinguished speakers included Ms. Lili Por- tilla, Director of the SBIR Program and Director of Strategic Alliances at the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS); Mr. Todd Merchak, SBIR/STTR Program Manager with the National Institute of Biomedical Imag- ing and Bioengineering (NIBIB); and Mr. Mi- chael Weingarten, Director of the SBIR Devel- opment Center at the National Cancer Institute (NCI). Ms. Gina Alexis, President of The Alexis Group Consultants and former chair of BioFlor- ida, and Ms. Alison Tanner, Florida Institute for the Commercialization of Public Research, con- cluded the presentation.

    The value of the educational workshop was enhanced by the numerous organizations repre- sented at the event. In addition to faculty from FIU and UM, the packed room included scien- tists, staff, and leadership from Torrey Pines Institute for Molecular Studies, Miami MedTech, Nicklaus Children’s Hospital, Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute, Nikao USA, and Kytaro, among others.

    ORED’s Technology Management and Com- mercialization (TMC) unit is available to assist FIU faculty. Faculty interested in pursuing grants through the SBIR or STTR mechanisms should contact Elizabeth Garami, Licensing Manager. To learn more about NSF I-CORPS opportunities, please contact Peter Hernandez, Director of the TMC.
