cumbered by HF. The system uses ultrasound… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The long-term clinical objective of this proposal Multimodal Diagnostic and Therapeutic Nanoparticles for Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma is the development of a novel therapeutic and diagnostic drug delivery technology for sp
ecific use in the treatment of… more
Abstract:PARS Summary This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I research project aims to develop paclitaxel-loaded nano particles with avidin modified surfaces for the targeting of the drug to cells that express an appropriate receptor for which the particle also carries the ligand. … more
Abstract:This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project aims to apply the unique property of high-speed jets to adhere to nearby curved surfaces, with a turning radius much larger than the size of the jet - the so-called COANDA effect. The proposed research aims to take advantage of this… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will build on an existing 400 kilowatt binary geothermal power plant. This power plant can supply more electricity than is needed during normal business operations, and because the grid is completely isolated due to its remote location (North… more

There are several categories such as “By Agency”, “By Year”, “By State” etc.
Select a checkbox within a category to refine your search results.
Each of your selections is listed in the “Narrow Search Filters” bar. You can uncheck these selections to remove them.
Search for Either Criteria
When you select multiple values within a category, the results will include values that match either of the selections.
For example, selecting “2005” and “2007” in the “By Year” category will display results that include either 2005 OR 2007 in the results.
Narrowing the Search Results
You can refine your search results across categories. To narrow down your results, select multiple values across different categories. The results will only include values that match the selections across the categories.
For example, selecting “2005” in the “By Year” category and “NASA” in the “By Agency” category will only display the results that contain both “2005” AND “NASA” in the results.
