Members of the Marquette community are invited to attend the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Small Business Innovation Research and Technology Transfer Conference, which takes place Tuesday, Nov. 7, through Thursday, Nov. 9, at the Hilton Milwaukee City Center.
This national conference is the cornerstone of HHS’s outreach efforts. The conference helps small businesses in the life science sector learn about more than $920 million of annual HHS funding, one of the largest sources of early stage capital for technology commercialization in the U.S. These programs allow U.S.-owned small businesses to forge academic partnerships and build businesses to engage in research and development that has a strong potential to deliver products and services to improve the health of Americans.
Attendees will discover how to successfully submit an application and learn about approaching partners and investors, the types of HHS assistance programs offered to awardees, and have the chance to discuss specific questions with HHS experts.
The conference is sponsored by the Clinical Translational Science Institute of Southeast Wisconsin, which includes Marquette.
Registration can be completed online.
