Commercializing Understudied Proteins from the Illuminating the Druggable Genome Project (IDG) (R43/R44 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

US Dept. of Health & Human Services: National Institutes of Health (NIH)

Deadline: The deadline for this grant has passed

Grant amount: US $225,000 - US $1,500,000

Fields of work: Human Genome & Genetics

Applicant type: For-Profit Business

Location of project: United States

Location of residency: United States


NOTE: NIH has received a waiver from SBA, as authorized by statute, to exceed the hard cap of $225,000 for Phase I or $1,500,000 for Phase II for specific topics. The current list of approved topics can be found here. Applicants are strongly encouraged to contact NIH program officials prior to submitting any application in excess of the guidelines and early in the application planning process. 

The goal of this funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is to solicit applications from small business concerns (SBCs) to initiate early research ultimately leading to the commercialization of understudied proteins identified in the "Illuminating the Druggable Genome" project (IDG). The purpose of the IDG is to reveal the function of selected understudied proteins in the druggable genome.

Organized as a consortium, the project consists of multiple Data and Resource Generation Centers (DRGCs), a Knowledge Management Center (KMC), a Resource Dissemination and Outreach Center (RDOC) and projects developing Cutting Edge Informatics Tools (CEITs). Small businesses are expected to complement the IDG Centers by proposing projects to commercially validate reagents, data or experimental approaches. Projects could range from early proof-of-concept demonstration and assay development/validation to the initiation of preclinical drug discovery projects.
