NSBRI-RFA-14-04: Administering health care in space demands innovative biomedical solutions. Small companies developing products that can be modified for use in space may be eligible for a unique funding opportunity offered through the National Space Biomedical Research Institute (NSBRI).

NSBRI's Industry Forum is soliciting applications for its Space Medical and Related Technologies Commercialization Assistance Program (SMARTCAP). SMARTCAP grants are used to accelerate the development of products meeting a need on Earth as well as in space. Current priorities include non-invasive approaches to assess brain and ocular health, diagnostic and therapeutic devices using ultrasound and other non-invasive modalities, and miniaturized mass spectrometry solutions.

SMARTCAP now accepts grant applications year-round, with reviews and awards made quarterly. To be considered during grant cycle three (July-Sept, 2014), the one- to two- page applications must be received no later than 5 p.m. central time, Aug. 7, 2014. Other grant cycle deadlines, submission guidelines and additional information regarding SMARTCAP can be found on
