The Neutrino Donut Project – Developing NIH Healthcare projects between the US and India

The Neutrino Donut is working on developing relationships with healthcare technologies in the US and India, and seeking cooperative research and commercialization grants. The basis for these projects is the global development of ideas and technologies, supporting by agencies on both sides.

Neutrino Donut Project – NIH Scouting for Grant Opportunities

The Neutrino Donut is working with multiple clients on the identification of grant opportunities within NIH. As part of this process, we have identified contact points for grants, developed an information strategy, and executed on the contact points to determine the most effective grant opportunities.
