Announcement of National Eye Institute Participation in PA-11-
347, ``NINDS SBIR Technology Transfer (SBIR-TT [R43/R44])''

    This notice is intended to inform potential applicants that the 
National Eye Institute (NEI) is participating in PA-11-347, ``NINDS 
SBIR Technology Transfer (SBIR-TT [R43/R44]).'' The NEI seeks SBIR 
applications for projects to transfer technologies out of the NIH 
intramural research labs into the private sector that address 
mechanisms, diseases, or disorders within the NEI mission.
    Any project that fits within the NEI mission and relies on the use 
of an NIH intramural technology is eligible for this award. Please see 
the NEI technology transfer Web site for more details on NEI licensing 
opportunities: http://www.nei.nih.gov/resources/technologytransfer.asp.
    For a complete listing of NIH intramural technologies which are 
available, please see NIH Office of Technology Transfer at: http://www.ott.nih.gov/Technologies/AbsSearchBox.aspx.
    The NEI Division of Intramural Research performs high quality and 
innovative research in a variety of basic, translational, and clinical 
areas,

[[Page 27785]]

including imaging, diagnostics, regenerative medicine, genetics/
genomics, developmental biology, cellular and gene therapy, and cell 
and molecular biology related to eye health and eye disease treatments. 
For more information about the research and investigators in the NEI 
Division of Intramural Research, please see: http://www.nei.nih.gov/intramural/.
    An NEI intramural investigator may provide assistance in a 
collaborative manner by providing technology, reagents and/or 
discussions during the SBIR award period; however, no SBIR funds are 
allowed to go to the NIH intramural investigator or the NIH intramural 
program.
    All other aspects of the Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) 
remain unchanged.
