Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Alcohol abuse and its medical consequences have a significant negative impact on society, the economy and our health. Currently, however, no clinically available laboratory test can reliably diagnose excessive alcohol u
se throughout the population or predict the… more
Abstract:Today¿s general purpose search engines have developed contextual based spelling/search suggestion software tools that are derived from the historical usage of the system. In other words, every search the system performs is stored and used as the basis of a statistical algorithm that locates… more
Abstract:In the explosion of digitized information that is available through corporate databases, data stores, and online search systems, a persistent problem is the management of the sheer volume of information identified. This information comes in the form of unstructured, semi-structured, and structured… more
Abstract:DOE currently operates an International Databases for sixteen countries. Currently, access is controlled by checking the IP address and/or username/password of registered users. Some countries would like to permit any citizen in their country to access the data, while other countries would like to… more
Abstract:Today, scientific and technical data are being generated at ever-increasing rates. At the same time, finding these data is becoming more difficult, as they are now often being deposited directly onto the Web without being linked to a specific publication. Even when a potential data source is… more
Abstract:The need to bring ordinance on 'targets of opportunity' quickly before the target moves to another location is of paramount importance. A cruise missile that can travel at sustained hypersonic velocities could provide such a capability by reducing the time to target by a factor of 5 or more. … more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The PVA clinical practice guidelines for preserving upper limb function following spinal cord injury recommends that wheelchair users minimize the force required to complete upper limb tasks, avoid positioning the hand
above the shoulder and avoid extreme… more
Abstract:This Phase I Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) research project aims to develop novel insect resistance genes that meet the growing market need for the control of agricultural pests with environmentally neutral compounds. Biotechnology has revolutionized agricultural pest management by… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovative Research Phase I research develops a set of microbial source tracking (MST) assays providing a cost-effective method to quantify fecal contamination, identify sources of fecal contamination, and detect pathogenic (disease-causing) microorganisms in drinking water… more
Abstract:Each year, about 15 million vehicles are discarded and processed by recycling companies for extraction of recyclable materials. While almost all metals are recycled, most non-metallic components of the vehicle (approximately 25% by weight) are not, and are landfilled instead. Therefore, methods… more
Abstract:At the large-scale national user facilities used for the advanced study of materials, the currently available neutron beam detectors have limitations for intense neutron beams. Yet, a large number of neutron-scattering experiments require beam monitors to operate at intense neutron beam fluxes… more
Abstract:As the U.S. Army increasingly operates in multicultural environments, Army leaders at a minimum must develop relationships with the local people. Multicultural perspective-taking competencies will enable leaders to build relationships and to function effectively in multicultural environments. … more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): For the past eight years, an image-guided liver surgery system has been developed by engineers and clinicians at several academic institutions, including Vanderbilt University and Washington University in St. Louis. In
mid-2004, after initial investigations… more
Abstract:Thermal neutron scattering is an extremely powerful technique for investigating the structure and properties of materials at the atomic level. As a consequence, many countries are currently making large investments in new neutron sources and the associated beamline instruments to carry out neutron… more
Abstract:The DOE Medical Sciences program supports advanced instrumentation for radionuclide imaging, which can serve as the basis for improved SPECT imaging systems. Therefore, this project will develop and evaluate improved detectors for planar radionuclide imaging. Phase I will demonstrate enhanced,… more
Abstract:Ever larger gamma ray detector arrays made from germanium crystals are being used, and will continue to be used, in nuclear physics research. However, radiation damage limits the time that a germanium detector can be used; for example, an average Gammasphere detector may function in an array for… more
Abstract:This effort will develop technology to improve the detection and location high explosives at large distances. The system will involve the use of an advanced gamma-ray detector and a neutron source. The detector concept will be developed into two prototype systems that will serve to demonstrate the… more
Abstract:We propose a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement between Phenotype Screening Corporation, (PSC), and the USDAs Forest Services Northern Research Station to investigate the suitability of PSCs recent innovation, Plant Root Characterization System, for use in tree research. The Plant Root… more
Abstract:This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I proposal addresses the visualization and study of the architectural properties of plant roots which, by their nature, are difficult to view and study in vivo. The research objective of this proposal is to develop a method for the analysis and… 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.
