Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Yourong Fu
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The objective of this Phase I study is to develop novel hydrogel-based tissue expanders that have delayed expansion with the capacity to be reshaped by the surgeon. Currently, plastic surgery routinely uses silicone bal loon-type tissue expanders or… More

Elastic biodegradable ureteral stent

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Haesun Park
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The objective of this Phase I study is to develop elastic, biodegradable ureteral stents that will degrade in the body within 2 weeks after a procedure. Current ureteral stents are made of non-degradable polymers and, u nless they are permanent, have to be… More

Reshapable Hydrogel Tissue Expander

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Haesun Park – 765-464-0390
Award Amount: $612,841.00
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): For dental and other applications there is a great need for self-filling tissue expanders with the capacity to be reshaped to fit the void by the surgeon at time of implantation. Akina recently completed an initial Phase II study using its hydrogel-based… More
