Abstract:Polylactid acid (PLA) is a thermoplastic, aliphatic polyester derived from renewable resources, such as corn starch and other sugars. It has numerous environmental benefits, including a lower energy cost at the beginning of its life and biodegradability at the end of life, and it is used in food… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Minimal Residual Disease Monitoring by T-cell Receptor Repertoire Profiling T-cell neoplasms are generally more aggressive and have poorer outcomes than comparable B-cell lymphomas. In addition, for many of these patients, prognosis following disease relapse is… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Many patients requiring stem cell transplantation for hematological malignancies are unable to find a suitable HLA-matched sibling or unrelated donor. Transplants using stem cells from umbilical cord blood provide an alternative for these patients, allowing… more
Abstract:Immunotherapy has emerged as a promising method to treat several cancers. In 2012 the FDA approved a new immunotherapy agent, ipilimumab, for metastatic melanoma. Ipilimumab activates T-cells and globally increases the adaptive immune response and resultsin an enhanced response to the cancer. In a… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research Phase II project focuses on the development of a high-yield fermentation route for the production of levulinic acid (LA). LA is one of the best-suited C5 building blocks for bio-refinery production due to higher value, broad applications, and likely quick… more
Abstract:This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project brings together computational enzyme design with systems biology to create a fully integrated platform for novel pathway designs. The approach chosen will combine specific databases and a novel pathway synthesis tool. This computational… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Allergy is a major cause of illness and disability with an estimated 40-50 million people afflicted in the US alone. AIT provides long-term benefits for the patient and its need for optimization creates a compelling business opportunity. There is a very strong… more
Abstract:Monitoring mercury contamination in groundwater, surface water, and other natural environments is challenging and expensive, and because samples have to be collected in the field and analyzed in a laboratory, there is a long delay before results are available. The expense of monitoring limits the… more
Abstract:In modern fusion concepts, inductive pickup loops are one of the primary magnetic diagnostics in tokamaks and small-scale concept exploration experiments. They are used in industries and laboratories that utilize and study low-temperature plasmas. Inductive pickup loops are capable of extremely… more
Abstract:Methods to reduce the turbulent viscous skin friction stand out as paramount to increasing the energy efficiency, and therefore the aerodynamic efficiency of supersonic aircraft. Eagle Harbor Technology (EHT) proposes to develop and optimize a MHD plasma injector, which will be used to efficiently… more
Abstract:Combustion of biomass, especially in small-scale applications, produces high emissions of particulate matter (PM) that have been linked to adverse health effects and global climate change. Current industrial particulate control solutions are prohibitively expensive for use in small scale biomass… more
Abstract:EOSPACE proposes developing a practical, very-wide-bandwidth electrical characterization technique based on advanced photonic signal processing. The characterization method only requires a high-speed mm-wave source and uses exclusively low-speed optical detection, eliminating the need for high-speed… more
Abstract:The objective is to develop a wideband, high-sensitivity, high RF power handling optical modulator suitable for use in low-noise microwave photonic links associated with military and commercial antenna applications. Specifically, the modulator will be designed to be highly-resistive to… 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.
