Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Aging-induced skeletal muscle atrophy, also known as sarcopenia, affects approximately 30 million people in the United States, often leading to weakness, reduced quality-of-life, falls, fractures, debilitation, insulinresistance, prolonged hospitalizations and… more
Abstract:Identification and Significance of the Problem: The United States alone has over 80,000 dams, unused for power generation. The cost of installing conventional hydro power generation equipment would be high and uneconomical. DOE research confirms that at least 165,000MW of untapped hydroelectric… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): There is a tremendous need for tools that allow NIH sponsored investigators to easily share and disseminate data from brain imaging studies. Access to large neuroimaging data sets is a critical aspect of learning abouthow the brain works both in health and… more
Abstract:In November 2011 the worlds human population reached 7 billion. Concurrent role shifts in world economies (e.g., competition for seafood products with China) make it necessary for aquaculture to grow at a pace much faster than previously estimated. In addition, the American seafood trade deficit now… more
Abstract:This STTR is aimed at developing methods and tools to characterize the impact of free-play on control surface flutter and overall stability and performance of the system. A successful completion of this two-phased STTR effort will lead to a modeling, analysis, design, and simulation tool that will… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Chemotherapy drugs tend to be highly cytotoxic and genotoxic, with well-documented carcinogenic, mutagenic, and teratogenic effects. Long-term occupational exposure to these highly toxic drugs presents serious health risks (e.g., cancers, infertility,… more
Abstract:This effort will develop a comprehensive, validated toolkit to aid product designers and Government procurement personnel in evaluating alternative designs for head-borne equipment. In the first phase of this project, Viz-Tek, Inc. completed an initial concept for an advanced head-neck model that… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will develop a fiber optically coupled in situ probe utilizing a superluminescent diode (SLD) optical source for monitoring bioreactor fermentations with ASL?s bioreactor monitor. The current ASL monitor uses a conventional, thermal light… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Ataxia-telangiectasia (A-T) is a multi-systemic, recessively inherited disorder that affects between 1 in 40,000 to 1 in 100,000 individuals worldwide. It is characterized primarily by early onset cerebellar ataxia andtelangiectasia, from which the disease name… more
Abstract:Project Summary/Abstract Cancer is the second deadliest disease in the United States, killing more than 500,000 Americans annually. This year, another 1.5 million will be diagnosed with one of nearly 200 different cancer types. Despite an ever---growing understanding of the environmental risk… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Aortic aneurysms and dissections are a cause of frequently preventable death for over 13,000 people annually in the US alone. Many more patients live under a constant threat of a catastrophic aortic event from atherosclerotic or congenital causes. Therefore,… more
Abstract:ASW training requires an accurate simulation of both sonobuoy data content and geolocation in order to maintain peak crew proficiency. Unfortunately, existing systems can generate and emit the necessary field of 64 sonobuoy signal simulations, but without the geographic dispersion of a real sonobuoy… more
Abstract:During initial design studies, parametric variation of vehicle geometryis routine. In addition, rotorcraft engineers traditionally use the wind tunnel to evaluate and finalize designs. Correlation between wind tunnel results and flight tests, when not good, have been often attributed in part to… more
Abstract:In this highly interconnected world, transportation systems must feature increased flexibility and shorter door-to-door trip times to be successful. Shorter door-to-door trip times require an increased usage of rotary wing and runway independent V/STOL technology. One of the limiting factors to… 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.
