Pacific Northwest Biomedical & Life Sciences Summit is Oct. 7, 2005

Federal grants are a major funding source for life sciences technology research and development. Federal agencies allocated more than $22.2 billion annually for research in biomedicine, bioscience and other health-related fields.

To help Washington companies and researchers capture a greater share of this federal funding, WTC is bringing grant experts from four government agencies to the state for this one-day event. Participating agencies include National Institutes of Health (NIH), U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), U.S. Department of Defense (DOD), and National Aeronautics &Space Administration (NASA).


Under programs like Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR), these agencies collectively earmark and award more than $2 billion annually to life sciences research. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to interact directly with these government agencies right here in Washington and learn more about these programs.

Conference Highlights:
* Hear first hand from federal agencies on what they look for in award-winning biomedical and bioscience grants.
* Meet one-on-one with agency representatives who can guide and assist you in understanding program development opportunities.
* Get professional advice and inside tips from legal and financial experts on issues such as contract management, business growth and development.
* Learn how to leverage funding awards to further your commercialization efforts.

This is a WaFAST Supported Event
