4 Local Health Sciences Companies Receive HSSA Grant-Writing Support

Here are four companies to whom HSSA has recently granted up to $5,000 for consulting on writing SBIR/STTR grants.

  • Preveal Technologies — Dr. Bob Hager, PI - seeks STTR grant for a tablet-based neurofeedback system to improve cognitive function and will use a hardware/software package that will allow an individual to exercise and strength working memory
  • Allele Diagnostics - Scott Sulpizio, Director of R&D - seeks SBIR grant to develop novel genetic test for the rapid diagnosis of sexual development (DSD)
  • Monte Carlo Medical Technologies LLC — Diego Vidal, CEO and Paula Eboli, MD and neurosurgeon - seeks SBIR grant to research and develop its deigned endovascular devices with flourless technology, EB catheters and wires, to reduce x-ray exposure to patients and health care professionals
  • Glucose Revival - Kris Maynard - seeks grant to further research applications and treatments for diabetes, including his medical alert necklace that contains the best available gel to quickly raise blood sugar levels

Our process is such that interested small businesses in need of a federal SBIR or STTR grant in the health sciences may apply online at www.hssaspokane.org by filling out an application at this site. After consideration by key members of the Board, we then agree to provide the small grant or not, and inform the applicant. We provide the names and contact information of the three consultants with whom we work, all of whom have professional experience with NIH or other agencies. The applicant choses with whom he or she will work. The consultant bills HSSA directly for the time spent helping with a grantee’s grant proposal. Fairly simple.
