Abstract:DESCRIPTION: Plants produce a wide variety of valuable bioactive metabolites, but these are commonly present in low concentrations in the wild-type plant. This makes the separation and purification of these compounds complicated and expensive. The applicant company, Naprogenix Inc, has developed a… more
Abstract:The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project is the development of a technology to sustain the efficacy of transgenic plants expressing the Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) toxin. Transgenic expression of Bt toxins is a major tool for the… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The objective of this proposal is to complete the engineering development and pre-clinical testing of the SCR SVAD system to provide partial cardiac assist in patients with less advanced stage heart failure (HF). HF isincreasing worldwide and represents a major… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project demonstrates the feasibility of using a new, non-invasive vibroacoustic method that simultaneously measures solids and air flow rates within highly-branched pneumatic conveyance piping. The method determines characteristic vibrations of… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): While it has been demonstrated that gene mutations are associated with an increasing number of neurodegenerative syndromes, environmental neurotoxicants remain a key factor in the etiology of many such diseases. For example, exposure to pesticides such as maneb… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The laboratory rat is a preferred rodent model in pre-clinical drug studies. Their larger size facilitates procedures otherwise difficult in mice, includng studies using instrumentation, blood sampling, and surgeries, and allows for ten times the amount of tissue… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: In this Phase II effort, nGimat will utilize its newly-developed FAFS technique to sinter ceramic films to metal substrates. The FAFS method was developed and proved feasible through a Phase I SBIR grant and we will expand our understanding of the technique through thorough R & D in… more
Abstract:The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project is in removing sulfur compounds from various fuels such as diesel, gasoline and mixture of refined fuels known as transmix. It is critically important to reduce sulfur levels below 10 ppm as… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Left ventricular assist device (LVAD) support allows the neonate with congenital heart disease or cardiomyopathy to grow to a larger body weight that is more feasible for complex surgical correction or heart transplant.A paracorporeal LVAD, the Berlin heart ExCor… more
Abstract:Intramammary infection (a.k.a., mastitis) is the largest attributable cause of lost productivity, discarded milk, chronic morbidity, and prophylactic antibiotic use in the dairy industry. The majority of new infections are associated with the dry period, during which the udders are temporarily… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): In the absence of effective, approved drugs or vaccines, vector control remains the only means of intervention for many against mosquito-borne diseases. This problem grows more complex with the recent establishment of multiple exotic mosquito species and… more
Abstract:To address a Navy need for a high resolution full color situational awareness displays to optimize human interface for Navy personnel, ships, and crafts, Hitron Technologies Inc. proposes to develop a see-through full color transparent flexible display with collaboration of Liquid Crystal Institute… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): More people in the U.S. (160,340 per year) die of lung cancer than of prostate, breast, and colon cancer combined. The most common type of lung cancer, non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC), accounts for 75% of all lung cancers. Regrettably, 85% of all patients… 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.
