Recently the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) released a funding opportunity announcement (RFA-HL-14-013) for a small business innovation research (SBIR) grant for technologies to assess sleep health status in populations. The purpose is to promote the development of biomarker panels for the point-of-care assessment of acute sleep deprivation, chronic sleep deficiency, sleep disorders, circadian rhythm abnormalities, risks to health or safety, or as intermediate markers of the efficacy achieved by sleep disorder interventions. The due date for new applications (Phase I) is Nov. 15, 2013. NHLBI intends to fund an estimated three new Phase I awards in fiscal year (FY) 2014. Budgets up to $150,000 total costs for Phase I may be requested. Only U.S. small business concerns (SBCs) are eligible to submit applications.
