National Space Biomedical Research Institute Funding Opportunity – Life Sciences

Filed under: Other Regional News — admin @ 2:21 pm

ATLANTA, GA - The National Space Biomedical Research Institute (NSBRI) is a non-profit science institute that works closely with NASA’s Human Research Program. NSBRI’s mission is to fund research and technology development to enable safe and productive human space flight (  NSBRI has launched a new program called SMARTCAP that awards $100,000 to small companies (<500 employees) for developing or validating technology or software solutions that can work in the space environment, mitigate a biomedical or job performance challenge for astronauts on long-duration space missions, and make an impact on a target population on Earth.  A complete description of the program may be found at

There are no strings attached to this award other than to successfully perform the work laid out in the proposal, and give credit in publications to NSBRI as the funding agency.

The Stage 1 application must be completed on-line ( and is due by 5:00 P.M., CST, on January 17, 2012.  Up to five applicants will be selected to submit proposals and present to the NSBRI Industry Forum in April.  Awardees (one or two) will be notified by May 9 and funding will commence on June 1.

Questions may be addressed to Dr. Dorit Donoviel, Deputy Chief Scientist and Industry Forum Lead, at
