The Southern California Biomedical Council (SoCalBio) is pleased to be part of the new NIH SHIFT SBIR Initiative designed for small  businesses. These grants seeks to bring business jobs to academic investigators - their shift from academia to industry (See the "SHIFT Connector" on how to proceed).

SoCalBio will function as a regional SHIFT information portal and  matchmaker helping to connect academic investigators with interested companies in Los Angeles, Orange County, the Inland Empire and Gold Coast Communities. 

Academics and companies interested in tapping SHIFT Grants can register to attend any of the following events to identify suitable partners.
