PIERRE, S.D. (AP) — The principal deputy director of the National Institutes of Health will be the keynote speaker at a national conference being held in South Dakota to connect small businesses with federal funding opportunities.
The state Board of Regents says Lawrence A. Tabak will speak at the Small Business Innovation Research and Small Business Technology Transfer Conference Oct. 28 in Sioux Falls.
The conference will focus on funding opportunities that help small businesses use health-related technology to bring new products to the commercial market. It also offers researchers in health-related fields a chance to collaborate with federal officials and businesses.
