Award List:

SBIR Phase I: A protein-based biofungicide for agricultural use

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Ryan W. Shepherd, PhD
Award Amount: $150,000.00
Abstract:
This SBIR Phase I project will develop a plan to use a protein normally produced in plants, to control phytopathogenic fungi. They have cloned a gene that encodes for this protein, expressed it in bacterial vectors, demonstrated activity against three phytopathogenic fungi, demonstrated activity on… More

SBIR Phase I: Targeted Production of Spider Silk Fibroins in Plant Trichomes

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Ryan W. Shepherd
Award Amount: $150,000.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will investigate the feasibility of producing spider silk fibroins in plant trichomes. Synthetic spider silk has great potential as an environmentally-friendly biomaterial because it is very flexible yet has a tensile strength greater than… More

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Ryan W. Shepherd
Award Amount: $499,910.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project proposes to develop a platform for the production of spider silk fibroins in plant trichomes. Synthetic spider silk has great potential as an environmentally-friendly biomaterial because it is very flexible yet has a tensile strength… More

Phytoextraction of Cadmium from Plant Trichomes Expressing a Stabilized Antibody

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Ryan W. Shepherd – 608-441-2782
Award Amount: $138,913.00
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will investigate the feasibility of utilizing a stabilized, cadmium-binding antibody to sequester cadmium in plant trichomes. Heavy metals such as cadmium are ubiquitous contaminants in soil surrounding… More
