Pre-Application Webinar: NIA Healthy Aging Start-Up Challenge and Bootcamp to Foster Diversity and Accelerate Innovation
Individuals from diverse backgrounds can provide unique and valuable contributions in the research and development of life science innovations that prevent disease, prolong life, and promote health. However, certain groups, such as women and individuals from racial/ethnic minoritized groups, remain underrepresented in the U.S. biomedical sciences and in life science entrepreneurship.

The National Institute on Aging (NIA) has launched an exciting new challenge prize competition, the Healthy Aging Start-Up Challenge and Bootcamp to Foster Diversity and Accelerate Innovation. The goal of the challenge is to stimulate innovation and foster diversity in aging research and development by providing cash prizes and non-cash prizes, such as strategic resources provided through an entrepreneurial bootcamp, that will help participants overcome barriers to participating in life sciences entrepreneurship. NIA invites researchers and entrepreneurs from diverse backgrounds with a demonstrated need for entrepreneurial resources who have innovative ideas for science-driven technologies and products that have the potential to increase the diversity of NIA-funded small business research and development.

Join the NIA Small Business Research Program team for a pre-application webinar on April 20, 2022, at 2 p.m. ET. This webinar will provide prospective applicants with an overview of the new challenge competition and bootcamp, including eligibility, application requirements, application guidance, tips for success, and the NIA Small Business Research priorities designed for the program. Participants will be able to meet with NIA Small Business Research experts and participate in a Q&A to get more information about the challenge.
