Phase IIB Competing Renewal Awards


The NIDCD will accept Phase IIB SBIR/STTR Competing Renewal grant applications to continue the process of developing products that require approval of a Federal regulatory agency (e.g., FDA, FCC). Such products include, but are not limited to: medical implants, drugs, vaccines, and new treatment or diagnostic tools that require FDA approval.

The NIDCD will accept applications for up to two (2) years and up to $750,000 per year in total costs. This renewal grant should allow small businesses to get to a stage where interest and investment by third parties is more likely.

Please contact your Program Director or Roger Miller, Ph.D., (NIDCD SBIR/STTR coordinator) before beginning the process of putting an application together. Prospective applicants are strongly encouraged to contact NIH staff prior to submission of a Competing Renewal application. Prospective applicants are strongly encouraged to submit to the program contact a letter of intent that includes the following information:

·       Descriptive title of the proposed research

·       Name, address, and telephone number of the Principal Investigator

·       Names of other key personnel

·       Participating institutions

·       Funding Opportunity Announcement Number (e.g., PA-12-XXX)

Although a letter of intent is not required, is not binding, and does not enter into the review of a subsequent application, the information that it contains allows NIH staff to estimate the potential review workload and plan the review. It is expected that only a portion of NIDCD SBIR/STTR Phase II awards will be eligible for a Phase IIB Competing Renewal award.
