Sanguine Awarded Competitive Grant from the National Science Foundation
Date:2/26/2019

SANGUINE BIOSCIENCES, INC. has been awarded a National Science Foundation (NSF) Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant for $224,981 to conduct research and development (R&D) work on developing a data platform that elegantly stores and organizes electronic patient data. The design of the platform enables ontological queries, allowing researchers to consult data when designing trials and quickly test specific inclusion/exclusion criteria to determine feasibility. Researchers will then be able to reach and recruit from a large pool of potential participants for trials, and increase the likelihood of trial success.

A majority of clinical trials are delayed or canceled because of insufficient recruitment of eligible participants. This Phase I project seeks to improve the speed, accuracy, and reliability of both clinical trial design and recruitment. Research organizations like pharmaceutical companies and hospitals typically maintain isolated databases with limited, static patient data.

“We are honored to receive this prestigious award by the National Science Foundation. In my experience managing and overseeing research studies both at Sanguine and Stanford, I have found that the biggest delays or bottlenecks are the result of patients’ inconvenience in gathering and curating their health data to determine research eligibility, as well as researchers’ inconvenience in identifying patients for their studies based on medical record data,” said Gerald Lee, Co-Founder and Chief Product Officer at Sanguine. “Our goal is to develop a platform that will enable seamless transactions – patients will be able to provide their data easily, and researchers will be able to search that data and request additional services, easily. This grant will help accelerate that vision by enabling us to add additional expertise to our team that will be instrumental in the development of this technology.”

“The National Science Foundation supports small businesses with the most innovative, cutting-edge ideas that have the potential to become great commercial successes and make huge societal impacts,” said Barry Johnson, Director of the NSF’s Division of Industrial Innovation and Partnerships. “We hope that this seed funding will spark solutions to some of the most important challenges of our time across all areas of science and technology.”

Once a small business is awarded a Phase I SBIR/STTR grant (up to $225,000), it becomes eligible to apply for a Phase II grant (up to $750,000). Small businesses with Phase II grants are eligible to receive up to $500,000 in additional matching funds with qualifying third-party investment or sales.

NSF accepts Phase I proposals from small businesses twice annually in June and December. Small businesses with innovative science and technology solutions, and commercial potential are encouraged to apply. All proposals submitted to the NSF SBIR/STTR program undergo a rigorous merit-based review process.
