The National Cancer Institute Small Business Innovation Research (NCI SBIR) Development Center is coming back to Cambridge! Program directors Michael Weingarten, Andy Kurtz, and Ashim Subedee will be presenting funding opportunities and other resources for startups in cancer technology. You will also learn about twelve new targeted funding opportunities in cancer detection, diagnosis, and treatment in high priority areas of research for the NCI. Although the trends reflect improvements in cancer treatments and advances in technology have led to better tools for understanding, detecting, and diagnosing cancer, we still have work to do. In 2017, an estimated 1,688,780 new cases of cancer will be diagnosed in the United States. The NCI is poised to reduce the burden of cancer in this country and around the world at an accelerated pace.
