NIEHS SBIR/STTR Environmental Technologies

The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences funds Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) (R43/44) and Small Business Technology Transfer Research (STTR) (R41/42) grants. These SBIR/STTR grants help small businesses develop innovative applications to translate and communicate environmental health research to improve public health.

Here we feature NIEHS small business grants awarded to foster the commercialization of innovative environmental technologies for detecting and remediating hazardous substances. These technologies have the potential of protecting health through preventing harmful exposures. For questions about these grants, please contact Heather Henry: 919-541-5330 or henryh@niehs.nih.gov.
