To support basic and clinical neuroscience, biomedical, behavioral and social science, epidemiologic, health services and health disparity research. To develop new knowledge and approaches related to the prevention, diagnosis, treatment, etiology, and consequences of drug abuse and addiction, including HIV/AIDS. To support research training and research scientist development. To support dissemination of research findings. Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) legislation is intended to expand and improve the SBIR programs to emphasize and increase private sector commercialization of technology developed through Federal SBIR research and development; increase small business participation in Federal research and development; and foster and encourage participation of socially and economically disadvantaged small business concerns and women-owned small business concerns in the SBIR program. The legislation intends that the Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) program stimulate and foster scientific and technological innovation through cooperative research and development carried out between small business concerns and research institutions; foster technology transfer between small business concerns and research institutions; to increase private sector commercialization of innovations derived from Federal research and development; and foster and encourage participation of socially and economically disadvantaged small business concerns and women-owned small business concerns in technological innovation.
