Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): A major goal in the post-genomic era is to express the vast collection of protein- coding sequences, eventually resulting in a better understanding of protein interactions and the development of novel therapeutics. Themost favored host for heterologous… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Each year, 100,000 Americans perish due to untreatable bacterial infections. The societal benefits of new antibiotic compounds that are effective against numerous multiple drug resistant pathogens would be significant.The best possible source for new antibiotic… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Robust expression of multi-subunit protein complexes is crucial for understanding the basic biology of organisms. Expression of the individual components in E. coli or yeast may be quick and cost-efficient, but many mammalian proteins show poor expression or… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) have been developed into a highly effective class of therapeutic molecules, with global growth of 37% between 2001 and 2002. Since their discovery in 1975, mAbs have been described as magic bullets with the potential to seek out… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Study of non-stationary phenomena in turbulent combusting flows requires spatial measurements of a set of parameters at kHz rates. Ideally these parameters would include the velocity , temperature, and a relevant species concentration. In response to this need, ORBITEC and the… more
Abstract:ORBITEC's Non-Thermal Sanitation by Atmospheric Pressure Plasma technology sanitizes fresh fruits and vegetables without the use of consumable chemicals and without significantly raising the temperature of the food, so food taste and quality are not affected. Atmospheric pressure plasma is well… more
Abstract:ORBITEC proposes to develop and demonstrate a novel cooling concept called Lattice Regenerative Cooling Methods (LRCM) for future high thrust in-space propulsion systems. Incorporation of ORBITEC's innovative lattice structures in the fabrication of thrust chambers for expander cycle engine… more
Abstract:ORBITEC, in collaboration with Lucigen, proposes a rapid genetic detector for spaceflight water systems to enable real-time detection of E. coli with minimal consumables and crew time. The Rapid Coliform Detector (RCD) amplifies the genetic material in a liquid sample to allow near real-time… more
Abstract:ORBITEC proposes to develop non-toxic propulsion systems to replace hyradzine-derivative systems in interceptor applications.

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.
