Access to capital is the #1 issue we hear from our members, so we are offering a NEW member-only service to help iBIO Members access non-dilutive funding from the government. By teaming up with G2G Consulting, which has secured over $528 million in government funding since 2007, iBIO will send out a monthly report on life sciences grants and offer monthly webinars with government funding experts to ask questions and gain insights on how to obtain funding. This Government Biosciences Grant Report or GBG Report is updated and published monthly with all life sciences opportunities spanning from NIH to BARDA to DoD to USDA to NSF to ARPA-H included.

Monthly GBG Report includes:

  • Title of the grant and opportunity number
  • Government agency/organization funding the grant
  • Amount of funding available
  • Deadlines for submission
  • Summary of the opportunity and its key criteria
  • Link to the grant package
