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 19th Non-Dilutive Funding Summit will be January 10, 2024.

NIA Small Business Seed Fund: Accelerating Alzheimer’s and Aging Research

The National Institute on Aging (NIA)

The National Institute on Aging (NIA) supports genetic, biological, clinical, behavioral, social, and economic research on aging. NIA’s primary activities include funding extramural research at universities, research centers, and small businesses across the US and around the world. As the lead federal agency for research on Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) and Related Dementias (ADRD), NIA has received an unprecedented influx of funding targeted toward understanding and addressing these conditions over the past seven years, and its plans and priorities reflect this extraordinary opportunity for discovery.
