Request for Proposals - Long Island Biosciences Hub

The Center for Biotechnology, in collaboration with Stony Brook University, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, Brookhaven National Laboratory, and Feinstein Institute for Medical Research, have formed the Long Island Biosciences Hub (LIBH).  A principal goal of the LIBH is to foster the development of therapeutics, diagnostics, medical devices and research tools emerging from the four partner institutions that address diseases within the broad mission of NIH:

Two specific funding programs have been designed to help faculty, physicians, surgeons, medical fellows, and post-docs develop their academic innovations toward commercial goals.  The RFP is attached, and forms for the funding programs can be found on the Center for Biotechnology website.

Those interested in applying are strongly encouraged to discuss the proposal with Dr. Li Liu ( and/or Dr. William Hanes ( They are also available to attend faculty meetings to introduce the scope of LIBH in general, and this Technology Development program in particular, as well as to answer questions about the application.

Deadline for submission is June 1st, 2017.  All proposal should be submitted through the online portal HERE. Please note an approval from your Sponsored Programs Office is NOT required prior to the submission but will be required if the project is selected to move on  a secondary review by a panel run by NIH specifically designed for the REACH hubs. Eligible applicants will be notified if their application is selected to move forward.
This program will be available twice per year through the next year, with the next deadline for proposals popping up around December 2017.

The LIBH is very grateful to the National Institutes of Health REACH initiative (Research Evaluation and Commercialization Hub), our four partner institutions, The Research Foundation for SUNY, and Empire State Development for their support of this initiative.
