Award List:

Keratin Biomaterials for Cranio-facial Tissue Engineering

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / OSD
Principal Investigator: Luke Burnett, Senior Scientist
Award Amount: $99,260.00
Abstract:
The majority of personnel injured in OIF/OEF have suffered blast effects from IEDs. Blasts often cause cranio-facial trauma that is difficult to repair. There is a significant need to develop better platform technologies for these injuries and translate them into clinical and commercial use. A… More

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Luke Burnett
Award Amount: $232,644.00
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This is a proposal to develop a keratin based resuscitation fluid that greatly improves outcomes for patients following treatment of hemorrhage. Inadequate fluid resuscitation technology has contributed to tens of thous ands of lives lost and billions of dollars… More

Spatiotemporally Controlled Keratin Biomaterial Delivery System for Functional Tissue Regeneration

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Luke Burnett, Director of Product Development – (336) 725-0621
Award Amount: $149,845.00
Abstract:
A principal approach in regenerative medicine is to stimulate or augment endogenous repair mechanisms that promote functional restoration of damaged or diseased tissues. When loss of significant volumes of multiple functionally integrated tissues occurs,

Keratin Biomaterials for Cranio-facial Tissue Engineering

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / DHP
Principal Investigator: Luke Burnett, Director Product Developm – (336) 202-1307
Award Amount: $749,994.00
Abstract:
The majority of personnel injured in OIF/OEF have suffered blast injuries from IEDs. Blasts often cause cranio-facial trauma that is difficult to repair surgically. The current standard of care involves the placement of fixation devices and off label use of growth factor carriers. These… More

Keratin biomaterial-based fluid for trauma resuscitation

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Luke R. Burnett – 336-202-1307
Award Amount: $778,026.00
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Although numerous advances have been made in the treatment of severe hemorrhage, current blood plasma substitutes do not address new insights in resuscitation medicine. Research in fluid technologies and vascular response following significant pre-hospital… More

Development of Biomaterial Scaffolds for Use in Regenerating Muscle Tissue

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Elizabeth Kneller, Scientist – (336) 725-0621
Award Amount: $149,478.00
Abstract:
Injuries to soft tissues in extremities represent a high percentage of battlefield wounds in recent conflicts. Therapies for restoring function to injured muscle are needed for Wounded Warriors suffering from debilitating and sometimes disfiguring musculoskeletal injuries. Regenerative medicine… More

Spatiotemporally Controlled Keratin Biomaterial Delivery System for Functional Tissue Regeneration Phase II

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Seth Tomblyn, Principle Scientist – (980) 989-0448
Award Amount: $999,999.00
Abstract:
Skeletal muscle injury is a significant challenge to warfighters due to the severity of the injuries often caused by Improvised Explosive Devices. Currently, there are few viable clinical treatment options for these types of injuries. Keratin hydrogels offer a solution to these challenges as… More

Flowable keratin biomaterials for improving infection control and wound healing.

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Seth Tomblyn, Formulations Scientist – (980) 989-0448
Award Amount: $149,938.00
Abstract:
The improvement of body armor, equipment, and decreases in patient transport times have dramatically improved survival of combat injuries. However, data suggests that future conflicts will require more aggressive wound management at the point of injury to deal with more complex wounds particularly… More

KeraStat(TM) Burn Gel and Halofuginone to Prevent Scar Contracture after Burn Injuries

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Luke Burnett, Chief Science Officer – (336) 725-0621
Award Amount: $149,834.00
Abstract:
This Phase I project is relevant to the ultimate goals of this program announcement given the prevalence of the IED which often creates complex burn wounds on the face and skin that often form hypertrophic scars that often contract over time. Burn wound healing is a complex process that includes… More
