Award List:

A Predictive Model for Nuclear Transfer Reprogramming

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Rachel Power
Award Amount: $0.00
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Infigen will use SBIR grant support to develop a model for evaluating the molecular events associated with cellular reprogramming that enables early determination of a cell's probability of developing into a desired organism or tissue. No such model has been… More

Production of cell lines with improved reprogramming potential for SCNT

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / STTR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Research Institution: LOUISIANA STATE UNIVERSITY
Principal Investigator: Rachel Power
Award Amount: $244,352.00
RI Contact: N/A
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): NuPotential will use NIH STTR funds to develop and validate a novel epigenetic-based in vitro system for reprogramming bovine donor cells to improve the efficiency of somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT). To accomplish this, NuPotential will alter chromatin… More

Novel Reprogrammed Cells for Differentiation into Cardiomyocytes

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Jong S. Rim
Award Amount: $499,765.00
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): NuPotential will use SBIR funds to improve a patent pending method to reprogram cells using a novel small molecule library. Reprogrammed cells generated using this improved method will be referred to as NuPiPSsm cell s. In addition, NuPotential will partner… More

Development of a human Oct-4 gene-targeted reporter cell line

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / STTR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Research Institution: University Of Iowa
Principal Investigator: Gregory Leno – 225-615-8954
Award Amount: $310,768.00
RI Contact:
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): NuPotential, Inc. will use NIH STTR funds to generate and validate human Oct-4 gene-targeted reporter cell lines that will provide superior predictive indexing of gene transcription for the identification of efficient reprogramming-competent epi-drugs. To… More

Improving Epigenetic-based Cell Reprogramming with Proteasome Inhibition

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / STTR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Research Institution: Lsu Pennington Biomedical Research Ctr
Principal Investigator: Jaroslaw Staszkiewicz – 225-615-8958
Award Amount: $329,136.00
RI Contact:
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Direct reprogramming of somatic cells to induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells has been demonstrated by viral transduction of exogenous transcription factors. These initial demonstrations have provided valuable insight into molecular mechanisms of somatic cell… More
