Award List:

Development of a Magnetically Driven Heart Pump

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2003 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Kurt A. Dasse
Award Amount: $166,445.00
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This project seeks to address a particular unmet need for mechanical circulatory support in children with heart failure. Pediatric heart patients possess several unique features, such as small body size, reduced blood volume, and altered hemodynamic… More

Miniature MagLev VAD for Children & Adults

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2003 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Kurt A. Dasse
Award Amount: $255,994.00
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The prevalence of congestive heart failure in the United States is nearly 5 million patients, with more than 500,000 new cases diagnosed per year. Of these patients, approximately 400,000 have a life expectancy of less than one year, and 200,000 die each year… More

Photolytically Driven Artificial Lung

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Kurt A. Dasse
Award Amount: $263,056.00
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The photolytic Conversion of energy derived from light is a common means in nature to drive chemical reactions. As an example, photosynthesis utilizes energy derived from sunlight to drive key metabolic processes in plants, while exchanging oxygen for carbon… More
