      The NCI continues to develop new funding opportunities that adapt to changes in the way that science is conducted. Supporting the best scientists is paramount. The Federal Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs are a critical source of non-dilutive financing for early stage companies, providing over $170M in fiscal year 2019 to develop next generation technologies.

      - NCI Investor Initiative to help NCI SBIR-funded companies to connect with investors, venture capitalists, strategic partners, and business leaders from the biotech and pharmaceutical industries
