SBIR Phase I: Target-Based Rational Design of Novel Insect Control Products

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Daniel Woods, PI
Award Amount: $99,650.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will manipulate insect behavior by interfering with the codling moth olfactory pathway. This will result in inhibition in mating of moths and laying of unfertilized eggs. The commercial application of project will be as an… More

SBIR Phase I: Attenu, a novel platform technology for developing attractants and repellents for the domestic honeybee, Apis mellifera.

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Daniel F. Woods, Dr
Award Amount: $98,000.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I research project will develop a novel platform technology to facilitate the discovery of products to alter insect behavior. These novel insect control products manipulate insect behavior by interfering with the insects chemosensory pathway. This… More

SBIR Phase I: Development of an Indole Biosensor Using Insect Chemosensory Proteins

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Daniel F. Woods, PhD
Award Amount: $99,125.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I research project aims to develop a rapid and sensitive detection system for Escherichia coli in water supplies, based on the production of indole by bacteria. The methodology takes advantage of chemosensory proteins that are sensitive to low… More

SBIR Phase I: Development of Novel Repellents for the Honeybee, Apis mellifera

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Daniel F. Woods, PhD
Award Amount: $99,903.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project provides the scientific foundation for a paradigm shift in insect pest control away from traditional insecticides toward products that alter insect behavior by directly manipulating insect chemosensory proteins. A rational design approach is… More

SBIR Phase I: Rapid Detection of Fecal Contamination in Drinking Water

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Daniel F. Woods, PhD
Award Amount: $99,881.00
Abstract:
This award is funded under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Public Law 111-5). This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I Project concerns a novel, rapid and cost-effective detection system for fecal contamination in water supplies. The need for better water safety screening… More

SBIR Phase II: Development of Novel Repellents for the Honeybee, Apis mellifera

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Daniel F. Woods
Award Amount: $505,014.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project provides the scientific foundation for a paradigm shift in insect pest control away from traditional insecticides to products that alter insect behavior by manipulating insect chemosensory proteins. We used rational design to isolate… More

SBIR Phase I:Novel attractants for the Asian citrus psyllid, Diaphorina citri

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Daniel F. Woods, PhD
Award Amount: $180,000.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will provide better attractants for the Asian citrus psyllid, Diaphorina citri. D. citri vectors citrus greening disease and is thus the most serious pest faced by the US citrus industry. The pest already has severely affected Florida… More

SBIR Phase II: Rapid Detection of Fecal Contamination in Drinking Water

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Daniel F. Woods
Award Amount: $494,234.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project concerns a novel, rapid and cost effective detection system for fecal contamination in water supplies. Although existing methods can detect fecal contamination in water samples, improvements are needed in sensitivity, accuracy, and… More
