Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): MDI 301 is a synthetic retinoid that is similar to all-trans retinoic acid (RA) in its ability to stimulate collagen synthesis and inhibit the major collagen-degrading enzymes in skin. A feature that distinguishes MDI
301 from RA is its lack of irritation when… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): MDI-301 is a synthetic retinoid. MDI-301, like RA, induces collagen synthesis and reduces expression of collagen-degrading matrix metalloproteinases in the skin. This agent also induces epidermal thickening. However, un
like RA, MDI-301 is non-irritating when… more
Abstract:A 2nd harmonic compact low voltage gyrotron operating in the TE021 mode at 94 or 95 GHz on the second cyclotron harmonic produced by a compact normal magnet will produce 100kWCW or more at high efficiency (35% or better before collector energy recovery) using a 50 kV magnetron injection gun (MIG)… more
Abstract:Electronic waste (e-waste) is one of the most rapidly growing waste problems worldwide. Improper handling of e-waste results in vast amounts of toxic waste being sent to landfills and leaching into the water supply. Because of these concerns, e-waste recycling is a rapidly growing industry.… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Our long-term research goal is to develop an ophthalmic, nanofiber-based, biodegradable device that will provide extended release of therapeutic agents to the posterior segment of the eye via transscleral and intravitr
eal approaches. This platform device will… more
Abstract:Currently available neutron detectors are limited in their ability to be used with the intense neutron beams used for the advanced study of materials at large-scale national facilities. A large number of neutron-scattering experiments require beam monitors to operate in an intense neutron beam flux… more
Abstract:Thermal neutron scattering is an extremely powerful technique for investigating the structure and properties of materials at the atomic level. By using inelastic neutron scattering, the fundamental excitation spectra within the material can be measured. However the cross sections for inelastic… more
Abstract:Large diameter germanium crystals are needed to provide larger, more sensitive, gamma-ray detectors for nuclear physics measurements at DOE user facilities. In this project, germanium crystal growth techniques will be experimentally developed for the growth of large diameter crystals. Phase I will… more
Abstract:Efficiently grown germanium crystals and detectors are needed for DOEÂ¿s low-background user facilities. These detectors are at the forefront of physics in the search for rare processes, such as neutrinoless double-beta decay, and also are used for low level counting facilities to characterize… more
Abstract:Plasma Sciences Corporation (PSC) will build upon previous and ongoing research in transient voltage phenomena to develop a microwave front end limiter that can withstand high power RF interference with minimal impact on normal operations. Participating in the effort is Professor Popovic of Old… more
Abstract:Microalgae hold great promise as a high-yield, non-food crop source of lipids for the production of biodiesel. However, a number of challenges need to be met. Two of the major challenges are the high costs of algae cultivation and harvesting (i.e., de-watering). Microalgae hold great promise as a… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Bone marrow and gastrointestinal mucosa are highly sensitive to radiation exposure. Radiation-induced damage to bone marrow and the gastrointestinal tract could be lethal in events such as nuclear accidents or radiation
terrorism, depending on radiation doses,… 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.
