Offices of Biotechnology and Business Development



Welcome to the Office of Biotechnology and Business Development's website.





Thinking of writing an SBIR/STTR proposal or just Interested in learning more about the program? 

Our colleagues at the Center for Biotechnology at Stony Brook University and Stony Brook University Economic Development in partnership with Columbia Technology Ventures are hosting a free SBIR/STTR training scheduled for May 12th and 13th .  
 (For those interested in NIH-funded programs, we strongly encourage registering for Day 1.  If you have questions about the program/agenda, please reach out to us at 


Led by experts from BBC Entrepreneurial Training & Consulting, join thelive Virtual Classroom for an interactive, two-day SBIR/STTR workshop. In addition to up-to-date information on the SBIR/STTR programs, they’ll take a deep dive into the differences between SBIR and STTR, review how to prepare an SBIR proposal for NIH, DoE, NSF and DoD, and how to avoid common pitfalls. The Virtual SBIR Classroom features activities and regular interaction with participants. Get your questions ready! This event is free to attend but registration is required. Register here. 

Participants of the workshop will also be invited to apply for subsidized, individual grant writing assistance. This is a great opportunity and OBBD encourages those interested to let us know and attend.

*** ATTENTION Faculty and Post-Docs *** 


Due to the transition to Albert Einstein College of Medicine requires that newly signed Intellectual Property Assignment Agreements must be received by all faculty and post-docs on the Einstein payroll.  






This site will serve as a communication tool for the faculty and staff of Albert Einstein College of Medicine, as well as our industry partners. The office of biotechnology serves as the technology transfer office of the college, facilitating the licensing of college technology to industry and research collaborations between industry and faculty. The office of business development serves to further enhance the value of the college's research, clinical and intellectual property assets by proactively collaborating with the commercial, governmental, financial and entrepreneurial communities in novel initiatives. Together, the offices work in partnership and build upon each other’s strengths, in order to fulfill the mission of assisting the translation of basic research advances made at Einstein into clinical applications that can benefit the public. 

The Albert Einstein College of Medicine retains assignment of all patents granted to its faculty. The college, through its Patent Committee, provides a mechanism for internal peer review and encouragement for its faculty to pursue patenting of technologies that are novel and have clear-cut, practical applications in biology and medicine. These applications have broad utility in biotechnology, clinical diagnostics and pharmaceutical medicine. The college is interested in promoting industry-sponsored research on our campus and the commercial development of products derived from our research activities.  

Information about our policies on patenting and working with industrial partners can be found on this site, as well as technologies available for licensing and our contact information. We look forward to working with you.
