Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is an autoimmune disease that affects the central nervous system (CNS) and results in neurological and clinical disability i number of adults in the US. Leukocyte infiltration and plaques of demyelination in the brain and spinal cord of… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) is thought to result from a breakdown of self-tolerance that is characterized by T cell-mediated destruction of the insulin-producing -cells in the pancreas. Ultimately, glucose metabolism is interrupted, resulting in the development of… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Upper limb amputation is a major cause of disability and is most effectively treated with a prosthesis. Powered prostheses - controlled by electromyographic (EMG) signals from residual muscles - are a popular and growing treatment option. Significant challenges… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Bladder cancer (BCa) is among the five most common malignancies worldwide. In the US alone, new BCa cases for 2012 are estimated at 73,500 with estimated deaths at 14,880. At presentation, the majority of bladder tumorsare non-muscle invasive, and can be treated… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): While there is no doubt smoking is a direct causative factor underlying the development of lung cancer, not every smoker develops lung cancer. In fact, only 10-15% of smokers develop this disease, indicating that otherfactors make certain individuals more… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project proposes to develop novel polymer coatings that bind hydrogen peroxide (HP), even after the surface has dried, thus maintaining sanitized surfaces and preventing microbial growth and the spread of disease.

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
