Tier Seven’s mission is to identify biomedical technologies that improve the delivery of health care for our warfighters.

Tier Seven’s Services

CRADAs and Technology Scouting

Cooperative Research & Development Agreements (CRADAs)

  • Collaborative agreements between industry and Department of Defense (DoD) principal investigators (PIs) at Military Training Facilities (MTFs)/research laboratories
  • First CRADA is free – Marketing, drafting, and implementation costs of one CRADA per private business entity
  • Tier Seven implements a limited number of CRADAs for private (biomedical industry) and public (DoD PIs) collaborations (~ 5/year)

Technology Scouting

  • Technologies: publications, patents, conferences (e.g., MHSRS, JPM, BIO International), and presentations
  • DoD PIs: case studies/success stories, publications, and biomedical databases


DoD Strategic Roadmaps

Non-Dilutive Funding

  • Identification, prioritization, and timeline development for DoD, Congressionally Directed Medical Research Programs (CDMRP), military-assisting OTA consortia (MCDC, MTEC, others), and Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR/STTR) programs, intramural and unsolicited mechanisms
  • Contract/grant narrative development
      • No speculative grant writing services

Multi-center collaborative partnering/resourcing to address complex biomedical problems
