  1. 1. U.S. Department of Energy Small Business Innovation Research and Small Business Technology Transfer 7th Annual NIH SBIR/STTR Conference July 28-29, 2005 Julie Scott DOE SBIR/STTR Program Coordinator
  2. 2. Agency Goals 1. Defense: Protect our national security using advanced science and nuclear technology. 2. Energy: Promote a diverse supply and delivery of reliable, affordable, and environmentally sound energy to protect our National and Economic Security 3. Science: Provide world-class scientific research capacity and advance scientific knowledge to protect the National and Economic Security. 4. Environment: Protect the environment by providing a responsible resolution to the legacy of the Cold War and by providing for the permanent disposal of the Nation’s high-level radioactive waste.
  3. 3. Office of Biological and Environmental Research (BER) Mission To support fundamental, peer-reviewed research in climate change, environmental remediation, genomics, systems biology, radiation biology, and medical sciences.
  4. 4. FY 05 & 06 Biological and Environmental Research (BER) Funding Profile ($ in Millions) FY 05 FY 06 Request Life Sciences 202.8 204.0 Medical Sciences 123.7 14.0 Climate Change 140.9 142.9 Environmental Remediation 104.5 94.7
  5. 5. BER’s SBIR/STTR Participation ($15.2 Million – FY 05) (1) Climate Change (2) Environmental Remediation (3) Medical Sciences (4) Life Sciences
  6. 6. FY 05 BER Submissions and Awards Submissions Awards Phase I ($100K ea) Medical Sciences 31 10 Genomes to Life 28 6* Phase II ($750K ea) Medical Sciences 9 3 Genomes to Life 5 2** * 3 of 6 were first time applicants/winners ** Both were first time applicants/winners
  7. 7. FY 06 Biotech/Biomedical SBIR and STTR Funding Opportunities  Genomes to Life and Related Biotechnologies -- develop a detailed understanding of the molecular machines of DOE- relevant microbes and their networking in living cells and microbial communities.  Medical Sciences -- energy related technologies including‑ nuclear medicine and advanced imaging instrumentation. DOE is interested in innovative research involving medical technologies to facilitate and advance the current state of diagnosis and treatment of human disorders.
  8. 8. FY 2006 SBIR/STTR Solicitation  Issued in the Fall 2005 (September)  Deadline in December 2005  Phase I Award Selection – sometime in June 2006  Awards begin - ~10-12 weeks after award selection
