Award List:

Fluorescent Molecular Oscillator for DNA Damage Detection

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Benxiao Zhang
Award Amount: $362,624.00
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): In this proposal, we will design and test a new and useful nanodevice - a fluorescent molecular oscillator. We will develop an application for this device as an ultra-fast nanosensor for detection of DNA damage and apop tosis in cell suspensions. The sensor is… More

Award Amount: $361,776.00
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): PEI-somes and cationization of protein probes for microimaging of nervous system In this proposal we will develop a technology and a carrier for the delivery of fluorescently labeled fully functional antibodies into liv e cells. This will make possible… More

In situ assay for DNA cleavage by topoisomerase II

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Benxiao Zhang – 713-794-7572
Award Amount: $148,463.00
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): In situ assay for DNA cleavage by topoisomerase II Abstract The goal of the proposed research is to introduce an enabling technology and the first in situ assay for selective detection of DNA cleavage by topoisomerase II (TOPO II). TOPO II is the critical enzyme… More

Nanocapsule-mediated topical delivery of VLP-generating Dengue DNA vaccine

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Benxiao Zhang – 713-794-7572
Award Amount: $149,051.00
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): We synthesized a recombinant version of Mimivirus (MV) DNA topoisomerase 1B protein possessing an unusual 5'OH ligation activity (MV-ligase). This permits a novel type of probe for the detection of apoptotic cell clearance. In this project w will develop… More
