The 18th Annual Non-Dilutive Funding Summit

The 18th Non-Dilutive Funding Summit brought together hundreds of life science industry leaders with directors at ARPA-H, BARDA, SEED, NIA, NHLBI, NIAID, NINDS, and CIRM, so the innovators could learn about non-dilutive funding opportunities for their R&D directly from the funding agencies.

This free summit is hosted by the FreeMind Group. FreeMind helps companies secure non-dilutive funding for life science R&D and wins over $100 million each year for clients.

The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID)

The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) conducts and supports basic and applied research to better understand, treat, and ultimately prevent infectious, immunologic, and allergic diseases. NIAID research has led to new therapies, vaccines, diagnostic tests, and other technologies that have improved the health of millions of people in the United States and around the world. NIAID’s areas of study include: HIV/AIDS; Infectious Diseases; Allergy, Immunology, & Transplantation. NIAID supports research at external academic and research institutions through funding opportunities including grants, contracts, and cooperative agreements. Decades of NIAID-funded research has helped further the understanding, diagnosis, and treatment of many of the world’s most intractable and widespread conditions in the areas of allergy, immunology and infectious diseases. In addition to targeted requests for proposals in response to initiatives, NIAID is always accepting researcher-initiated applications.
