Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Diabetes affects more than 8% of Americans and costs over 174 billion in 2007 in USA. Recently bariatric surgery, such as Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, has been proposed for treating diabetic patients with obesity due to its hypoglycemic effect on postprandial blood… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: This program targets development of a high-performance thermoelectric (TE) cooler with a figure-of-merit, ZT>3, which greatly exceeds currently available technology. The cooler is fabricated using Group II-VI compound semiconductors, i.e. HgCdSe or HgCdTe, using a low dimensional… more
Abstract:This STTR Phase I proposal addresses a NASA need for improved near-to-mid IR detectors for imaging and spectroscopy. High performance IR detectors with cutoff wavelengths in the range of 2.5?5.0 microns will be developed using InGaAs / AlAsSb semiconductor materials. The proposal uses a two-pronged… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Early diagnosis of infectious disease is critical to patient outcome. An important early question is - is it a fungus, a bacterium or a virus? A rapid answer to this question would allow preemptive treatment that cansave lives. The goal of this project is a… more
Abstract:Cryptococcal meningitis (CM) kills more than 600,000 HIV-infected individuals globally per year, with the highest yearly incidence occurring in sub-Saharan Africa. There is a critical need for a simple diagnostic tool for cryptococcosis that can be used in resource-limited countries. An innovative… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Congestive heart failure (CHF) is one of the most serious medical challenges of our day. With 5 million Americans compromised by the ravages of this disabling disease, CHF is the leading cause of Medicare hospital admissions. The economic burden exceeds 40… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is a solid tumor and is the fourth leading cause of cancer-related death in the U.S. The 5-year survival rate of its victims is lt5%. There is increasing evidence that most solidtumors have a subpopulation of… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Accurate prediction of part performance/reliability is at the core of health management of air vehicles and of supply chain management. Methodologies are needed to accurately predict/evaluate parts performance/reliability with compounding problem criteria/factors for early corrective… more
Abstract:This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase I project will create a fuel storage system for natural gas using adsorbent technology. This adsorbed natural gas (ANG) technology will allow this all-composite, conformable, lower pressure system to hold equivalent amounts of natural gas as… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION: Incremental improvements in label free screening technologies over the past decade have not produced the capability necessary to support the changing needs of drug discovery programs. Persistent artifacts related to non-specific binding, promiscuous binding, precipitation, complex… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The Advanced Biofidelic Lower Extremity Kids prosthesis (ABLE Kids) project will advance the state-of-the-art of pediatric prosthesis systems by advancing the demonstrably successful Phase I device and refining it intoan ultracompact and lightweight form factor… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Stiffness and alignment of ankle-foot orthoses (AFOs) should be tuned optimally to maximize their function. Improperly tuned AFO may induce joint pain, reduced ambulatory function, and increased medical complications for patients with stroke. Therefore, the… more

BENEFIT: The engineer will be guided through the creation of criteria, alternatives and evaluation techniques in order to make a better decision.
Abstract:ABSTRACT: As we move from a paper-based world into a digital environment, the internet will soon evolve from a virtual documentation system into a vibrant ecosystem of data where documents and human actors play an even smaller role. We are currently reaching a tipping point in history concerning… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation research Phase I proposes the development of a practical and reliable in-vitro test for detecting the evidence of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) infection as an alternative to the tuberculin skin test (PPD-TST) and to the interferon gamma release assays (IGRAs).

Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): In spite of billions of dollars spent in the War on Cancer, cancer-specific mortality has changed little as a result, and the vast majority of cures are produced surgically, not from chemotherapy. The main problem is that even with early detection; most cancers… 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.
