Datacorp has been awarded a Fast-Track Phase I and Phase II Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant from the National Institutes of Health’s National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS) to advance developments in data management. This project will lay the ground work for developing a software product that will automate the way data sets are created.
NIH’s SBIR program is designed for domestic small business concerns engaging in research and development efforts that have strong potential for commercialization and public benefit. SBIR grant proposals undergo rigorous peer review by independent scientists and the funding agency. Grant awards are made on the basis of technological innovation, scientific merit, commercialization, and corporate potential.
Dr. P. Allison Minugh, Datacorp’s CEO and Principal Investigator on the project states, “This software tool will offer an innovative and expedited way to produce high value, standardized, and transparent data sets that will help the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences enhance the development, testing and implementation of diagnostics and therapeutics across a wide range of human diseases and conditions.”
