Dr. Mani Alikhani’s commitment to NIH’s Translational Research Effort

Dr. Alikhani’s dedication to translation of research findings into clinic applications brought him to NIH three times in 2019, each time to review grant applications to the Small Business Innovation Research/Small Business Technology Transfer Program. This funding mechanism was created to stimulate collaboration between industry and non-profit research institutions to transfer discoveries into commercialized technology for the benefit of patients.
