Funding available for supplement research.


Small Industry Innovation Research (SBIR) grants are readily available to those seeking funding for dietary supplement research, says Bernadette Marriott, MD, of the NIH Office of Dietary Supplements. For 1997, NIH budgeted $245.7 million for the SBIR project, and Marriott reports that 40% to 70% of applications are funded. According to the SBIR homepage, the program is "intended to support small business innovation research that results in commercial products or services that benefit the public."  The homepage can be accessed at
