About Us

Who We Are

West Rock Associates is a grant recruitment firm run by Dr. Neil Krieger. He has helped to recruit approximately $50 million for more than 200 clients.  We focus on Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grants from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the Department of Defense (DOD) and on Orphan Drug grants from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Neil Krieger, Ph.D. has more than 30 years of grant recruitment experience that has given him a keen understanding of what funding agencies are looking for.  He assists with all facets of the proposal from the focus and presentation of the project to the coherence of the writing itself: the planning, writing, editing, and critiquing of the proposal.  He advises and collaborates with the Principal Investigators (PIs) to produce a grant that will get the reviewers’ attention and that will convince them that this is a grant they want to see funded.

Neil received a Ph.D. in Biochemistry from Harvard University and was a faculty member and research director at the Harvard Medical School and the University of Pennsylvania Medical School over a 20-year period.
