Abstract:Project Summary/Abstract Medical students long ago gave up robbing graves for corpses, but students still need access to anatomy resources. While availability of traditional resources (e.g. cadavers, animals, etc.) is dwindling, emerging virtual alternatives are revolutionizing the practice of… more
Abstract:The proposed effort will create software that will serve as an integration tool to link the results of the material degradation research due to corrosion fatigue into a usable structural analysis tool. Fatigue failure due to corrosion is a multi-disciplinary, multi-scale problem that needs to… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The damage tolerance approach is used widely in aerospace industry and has a physics-based foundation in fracture mechanics. The fatigue crack growth rate can be determined by calculating the SIF and knowing empirically derived material parameters. Similitude is achieved for different… more
Abstract:It is increasingly difficult for companies to enter the spare parts business. To produce a spare part, the manufacturer must recreate the form, fit and function of the original part, which can be especially difficult with high strength forged metal parts. There are processes available to the forging… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): There is an urgent, unmet need for novel therapeutic approaches that are efficacious against lung cancer. Ranking first among cancer deaths in the U.S., this disease has 5-year relative survival rates of lt20%. Most lung cancers are non-small cell (NSCLC, 85% of… more
Abstract:The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project is in significantly increasing the ways supercapacitors and lithium ion batteries are used today. Supercapacitors offer very high power capabilities and high energy efficiency and have been… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovative Research Phase I project addresses a new cost-effective, environmentally friendly process for producing activated carbon (AC). Prior experimentation conducted by the principal investigator has demonstrated that it is possible to produce AC in small laboratory batches… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project proposes to develop self-generated bioluminescence in zebrafish to create improved models for new drug discovery, therapeutic testing, and biomedical disease imaging. Zebrafish share many common anatomical, developmental, and… more
Abstract:This SBIR Phase I project proposes to design and develop an educational, curriculum-agnostic student-based screencasting software tool integrated with teacher assessment to support improved student mastery of complex STEM concepts. Though the tool has potential for use in all grade levels, but… more
Abstract:Solid oxide fuel cells have long suffered from degradation due to impurities in the fuel and complexities associated with dissimilar materials and high operating temperatures. This degradation lowers the usable cell power output and requires ancillary equipment for fuel sulfur removal and… more
Abstract:The broader impact/commercial impact of this project will be in potentially improving drinking water quality throughout the United States and the world. The availability of a safe drinking water supply is fundamental to human life and the development of stable civilizations. This importance cannot… 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.
