Research & Development Grants
Modern research and development requires initial grant funding for most of the newer projects that are created. There are private and government offerings available for innovation grant funding and the Technology Strategy Board was developed with numerous innovation platforms for research and development, including the TSB smart grant. There are numerous tools and programs that can be implemented for small business research initiatives and knowledge transfer partnerships can be used to cross-develop specific innovations. Research and development funding is offered to local and global research communities that meet specific qualifying characteristics.
Collaborative R&D Grants
The following are several of the biomedical catalyst opportunities offered to the local and global medical research communities:
- Biomedical imaging and bioengineering is an up-and-coming field of research that is receiving numerous private and government grants. The proposals that are being accepted reach specific levels of quality and are creating modern biomedical technologies to improve the health of public communities.
- Nuclear acid therapeutic science, for example, is an area of current funding opportunity. Innovations are developing in the field of reparative medicine, also.
- Neuroscience information is a critical part of state-of-the-art medicine. In-vivo methods of assessing placental development and function have become current biomedical grant opportunities that help detect pregnancy abnormalities before these problems progress.
- Blood pressure measurement studies are needed for rural and other low resource locations within the U.S. and India. Translational research grants are offered, in order to assist older adults with their medical needs and independence requirements. Under-served populations, with chronic conditions, are current medical populations that need additional research and development assistance. Specific innovation projects are offered, in order to provide communication and adherence to necessary treatment therapies. Self-management is an important factor that is essential for under-served and elderly populations.
Qualifying for Research and Development Funding
Qualifying factors for research and development funding typically include the size and location of a research facility or community, the number of employees involved in a research project, the overall research emphasis of the project proposed and the specific quality of all proposals offered to a research and development licensing board.
Specific projects may need an academic location and there are pre-doctoral fellowships available that are a type of grant funding opportunity. Numerous research grants are offered for biomedical computing projects, informatics and big data sciences. HIV cure research grants require that a recipient of a grant award be able to provide ITAS cure-related results.
Several awards available will need a facility to produce NIH and FDA clearance documents, in order to begin a research project. Research science degrees are necessary for the staff and developers of most biomedical projects. Stem cell projects are offered for regenerative medical laboratories. Behavioral health projects require systems research.
