Improving Diversity in Biotech by Leveraging SBIR/STTR Opportunities hosted by BIO
Biotech has made significant strides in diversity, equity, and inclusion—but work must continue to ensure diverse talent can access biotech careers and strengthen the entrepreneurial community. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) and Biotechnology Innovation Organization (BIO) are dedicated to supporting diverse bioscience businesses through the NIH Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs.
BIO President and CEO Dr. Michelle McMurry-Heath will lead this diversity-focused discussion and will highlight NIH’s SBIR and STTR programs across three NIH institutes and centers. The conversation will also feature NIH’s efforts and resources to improve the diversity of the research workforce.
