Abstract:This Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) Phase I project is focused on the development of a chemical treatment for bast natural fibers called "In-Situ Polymeric Coating (IPC)". An IPC coating will enable kenaf, flax, jute and/or other bast natural fibers to replace fiberglass in… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The overall goal of this research collaboration is to develop a high-throughput digital microfluidic instrument capable of screening dozens of newborns simultaneously for severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID). There is a significant need at the state-screening… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Recent technological advances in genotyping and DNA sequencing platforms have enabled ever larger and more ambitious projects aimed at understanding the genetic basis of human disease. Specialized biobanks have emergedto meet the needs of these studies by… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Severe hyperbilirubinemia (defined as serum bilirubin levels greater than 99th percentile) can cause a spectrum of neurologic dysfunction, of which kernicterus has the most devastating neurologic consequences. Kernicterus manifests as a life-long movement… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The ultimate goal of this project is to develop an extremely compact and inexpensive DNA sequence for applications in laboratory and clinical settings. The device will implement pyrosequencing on a disposable droplet based digital microfluidic cartridge and… more
Abstract:A novel method of manufacturing complex unitized composite structures reinforced with 3D non-crimp orthogonal woven fabric (serving as self-sustained single-ply skin preform) and 3D braided fabrics (serving as self-sustained unitary preforms for stiffeners, Pi-joints or other similar elements) is… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Bone cements are widely used in maxillofacial surgery, repair of cranial defects, and dental fillings. Calcium phosphate bone cements are useful in many types of bone repair because they conform to the defect area, harden in situ, and can be resorbed and replaced… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Over 700,000 surgical hernia repairs are performed each year in the United States and despite recent advances, a significant rate of recurrence persists. Incisional or visceral hernia repairs account for 100,000 of these surgeries costing 1.7B annually, and have… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Approximately 500,000 bone-grafting procedures are performed each year in the United States.5 Autologous iliac crest bone graft continues to be the gold standard, because it provides essential elements for bone formation: progenitor cells, an osteoconductive… more
Abstract:Applied Quantum Technologies proposes the development of a snapshot Raman spectral imager for chemical imaging applications with a 1-5 meter standoff. Standoff chemical imaging methods are typically point-based, making scan times impractical for situations where a wide area needs to be surveyed. The… more
Abstract:Our Phase I study provided quantitative results that showed feasibility for scenarios of interest. It included both the details of signatures and the sensitivity for THz sensor systems with realistic parameters. In Phase II we will extend these results to create a non-scenario specific model that… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Acquiring diagnostic images of the retina in children is necessary to the prevention and treatment of pediatric eye disease, but it is often difficult due to the large range of eye shapes and sizes from preemies to older children and the inability of most… more
Abstract:Accurate estimates of the vibroacoustic loading placed on space vehicles and payloads during launch require knowledge of the rocket noise source properties. Given the extreme nature of acoustic environments near the plume, data sufficient to characterize the noise source region have been difficult… more
Abstract:Robust target tracking and accurate geo-location for over-the-horizon radar (OTHR) are currently limited by clutter-contamination of signal returns and uncertainty in the multi-mode mapping from radar to ground coordinates. In this proposal, we address both these challenges by developing methods… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Though the USPSTF recommends all clinicians intervene with obese adults (AHRQ, 2003), less than half of patients are assessed, counseled, or otherwise treated for obesity. This project will create an innovative web-based continuing professional development… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): In the SBIR Fast-track application, we propose to create and evaluate an online skills training experience for medical students to properly assess patients in pain, minimize potential opioid misuse, and maximize pain treatment. Our curriculum will provide an… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an inflammatory autoimmune disease in young adults, affecting more than 530,000 people in the United States and approximately 2 million worldwide. MS is characterized pathologically by inflammation, demyelination and axonal damage in… 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.
