NIH SBIR – Dreaded Not Reviewed :-(


Hello there –

I submitted a FastTrack SBIR application and just saw the update on eRA Commons that my application wasn’t discussed – which suggests it didn’t even make it to the top 50%. I had put a lot of effort into it and I am obviously very disappointed. Considering the long review/funding process, I am not sure if I would submit another revision. There maybe an option for Direct to Phase 2.

I am wondering where do we go from here from SBIR perspective – and not sure if I want to submit another one. Will look at the reviewer’s comments when they come and see what they saw.

Just wondering if there are others members who successfully moved on to other venues of funding after a failure at SBIR.
