The company Alien TT(Technology Transfer), has recently entered into a partnership with Buswell Biomedical. Together, we are gearing up to submit an application for a Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in April.
About a year ago, Alien TT conducted an evaluation of Buswell Biomedical and identified specific areas where progress was crucial for a successful NIH grant application. Key milestones included obtaining a patent and gathering data motion samples, which significantly enhanced Buswell Biomedical's suitability as a partner.
Our collaboration aims to compile and submit the STTR Grant application through the NIH, with Alien TT taking the lead in the writing and submission process. Payment will be received upon securing a Phase 1 grant from the NIH. Laurie Albersworth, my collaborator on a 2020 National Science Foundation Small Business Innovation Research (NSF SBIR) Grant, understands the considerable effort required for such initiatives. The decision to pursue this grant is driven by the efficiency Alien TT brings to the process.
If we are fortunate enough to be awarded the STTR Grant, the collaboration will expand to include Saint Louis University (SLU). Buswell Biomedical and SLU will collaborate to achieve the outlined objectives in the grant, enhancing the potential impact of our research and development efforts.
