Teen Health Research Awarded $340,143 NIH Grant

Teen Health Research, Inc. was recently awarded $340,143 in non-dilutive grant funds from the National Institute of Health (NIH).

This Phase I STTR award will support Teen Health Research's goal of modernizing parent and teen communication around sexual and reproductive health by funding development of its Let's Talk platform.

Let's Talk is a comprehensive and personalized platform designed to take the anxiety out of "the talk" by providing step-by-step guides and checklists to help drive open and honest conversations. Unlike other platforms and resources, Let's Talk is a multi-user platform for both parents and their children that enables both to start and continue conversations as they learn together.

The NIH Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Program provides grant funding opportunities to small businesses for early-stage research and development of new technologies and products that have the potential to positively impact the public health spectrum.

Teen Health Research will use the funding to develop a test-ready version of the platform that can be used by test families to optimize the design and features. It will target a full beta test in late 2024 to further validate the platform design with a larger group of families.

Teen Health Research, Inc. is a women-owned startup company working to help teens and families develop the communication skills they need for happier, healthier relationships. Launched in 2021 based on research from North Carolina State University, the company is developing a digital platform to help parents and teens overcome their fears of talking about sex.
