Workshops, Trainings, and Conferences

SBIR Proposal Preparation Day 1

May 21| 8:30 - 4:30 MST| Jackson - Teton County Extension - 255 W Deloney

 

This session begins with a comprehensive overview of the SBIR and STTR programs, including differentiation between the two programs and significant changes that are occurring as a result of recent re-authorization. It then continues into an extended discussion of a simple but effective four-step process for developing a Phase I proposal to any of the participating SBIR/STTR agencies and concludes with a brief view of sample Phase I proposals.  

Presenter: Jim Greenwood and his wife, Gail, have been involved in the SBIR program since its inception in 1983. The Greenwoods have taught SBIR/STTR workshops in 48 states plus Puerto Rico and Washington D.C., offering training through local and regional economic development groups, universities, Federal laboratories, SBDCs, and MEPs. The Greenwoods also have taught at many of the National SBIR Conferences in the past decade, including the most recent national conferences in New Orleans, Portland, Washington DC, and Austin.

SBIR Cost Accounting Day 2

May 22 | 8:00 - 2:00 | Jackson - Teton County Extension - 255 W Deloney

This session delves into the perplexing world of government accounting, and the all-important SBIR/STTR cost proposal. This workshop focuses on the development of an indirect rate (aka overhead, fringe, F&A, G&A) for your company, and then how to apply that rate to an accurate and defensible cost proposal as part of your Phase I or II SBIR/STTR proposals. IF you don’t learn this stuff and try to wing it, you will make mistakes, and you will lose money.

How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the FDA

May 28 | 2-3:00 | Online Webinar

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) plays an important role in American health care and in the development of new ways to combating disease. However, the public and researchers often sees their activities as opaque and arcane.

In this webinar, we will demystify the process of drug development and then gaining FDA approval. As part of the presentation, Dr. Randy Goff will describe his experience in the field of drug discovery and the process of obtaining FDA approval for Mylotarg, an innovative anti-cancer drug.

Presenter: Randy Goff is a native of Southern California but has moved around the country extensively for his career. While earning his Bachelor’s Degree in Chemistry at Cal State Long Beach, he worked for several years in analytical and product research labs at US Borax (mining) and Sherwin, Inc. (aerospace). He earned his PhD in chemistry at Brigham Young University synthesizing and studying biologically-active agents that stimulate the immune system. He did postdoctoral research in the School of Pharmacy at the University of Wisconsin-Madison studying chemoselective methods of attaching sugar molecules to pharmaceutical compounds. He is currently an Associate Professor of Chemistry at Western Wyoming Community College where he teaches general and organic chemistry courses.
