$200,000 for Biotechnology Development Awards

Applications for Biotechnology Development Programs Now Available.

The Maryland Biotechnology Center now has available our FY2011 funding for the Biotechnology Development Awards. Again this year, we have three programs, the Biotechnology Commercialization Awards, the Translational Research Awards, and the Shared Resource Grants, with grants up to $200,000.

Applications for and descriptions of these programs are available on our website, www.marylandbiocenter.org. There is a link on the left side of the home page that will take you directly to the program information and downloadable applications. Each Application Detail Form includes additional information specific to that program. Please note that ALL applications must include the separate Application Cover and the Detail and Cover Applications must be submitted as separate files.

The schedule for the first round of review is:

Application Deadlines Sept. 1, 2010
Presentation Notification Sept. 15, 2010
Applicant Presentations Oct. 1-15, 2010
Award Notifications Oct. 22, 2010

We will have another round of submissions and review in Feb. 2011. Look for announcements on our website late in 2010.

If you submitted an application for a program for FY2010 and did not receive an award, you can have that application rolled forward for consideration in the Sept. 1 round if you would like. Just send me an email indicating that you would like your same application considered. Or you are welcome to revise and submit a new application.

If you have any questions, visit our website at www.marylandbiocenter.org, or contact Chuck Montague, Ph.D., Manager, Biotechnology Development Programs, Maryland Biotechnology Center, 410.767.3837 or cmontague@marylandbiocenter.org
