Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Biotherapeutics is a fast-growth sector in the pharmaceutical market with monoclonal antibodies accounting for almost 50% of the 100 billion USD spent each year on protein therapies. Bacterial fermentation, which accounts for about 35% of all protein therapeutics… more
Abstract:Complex skin defects, including burns and trauma, represent a major medical problem affecting both military and civilian populations. In recent military engagements, burns account for approximately 5% of combat casualties. Furthermore, approximately 1.25 million Americans each year require medical… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The scientific literacy of U.S. high school students is disturbingly low, leaving many ill-prepared to comprehend the substance of important modern issues, as well as their own health-related conditions. Enhanced educational efforts are needed to improve the… more
Abstract:Many detectors - including solid-state particle detectors, microchannel plates, and photodiodes - output small current signals that require amplification and conversion to a voltage. Current-to-voltage converters (I/Vs) are widely utilized in experimental and commercial applications for this task.… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Remarkable improvements in throughput, accuracy and cost-effectiveness of next-generation sequencing (next-gen) technologies are ushering in a new era of clinical medicine. Genome wide association studies (GWAS) in particular have begun to leverage these advances… more
Abstract:This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project will develop a facultative anaerobic bacterium that ferments sugars obtained from cellulosic sources into isoprene, a valuable feedstock used in the production of latex rubber, plastics, and pharmaceuticals. Isoprene also is used for the… more
Abstract:Vacuum glazing has been on the market for over a decade, but its performance is poor, and its cost too high for wide adoption. Both issues stem from the use of a hard glass edge seal, which requires a high temperature manufacturing process, and which does not flex to accommodate outer pane… more
Abstract:Obesity is a growing epidemic that threatens the health of both adults and children. The problem is exacerbated by challenging economic times and increasing food costs that put pressure on consumers to purchase lower priced meals, which may be of inferior nutritional value and/or contain excessive… more
Abstract:FOREST-TO-FACTORY: ROUND TIMBER SUPPLY CHAIN TOOLS AND TECHNIQUES USDA secretary, Tom Vilsack has urged the Forest Service to "develop new markets" for forest by-products, which encourage healthy timber management. WholeTrees® Architecture & Structures (WT) is commercializing a line of round… more
Abstract:The desire and benefit to improve the environment through the use of advanced electric drive vehicles is hampered by the high cost and associated manufacturing hazards associated with the manufacture of lithium ion batteries. The use of solvents in the lithium ion battery manufacturing process… more
Abstract:We propose to design and implement a query-based approach to interoperable modeling and simulation of composite material structures, that usually contain the manufacturing recipe within their design. In Phase I, we established the feasibility of the approach using a demonstration scenario of CAD/CAE… more
Abstract:Johne & #39;s disease (JD) or paratuberculosis in animals (infection with M. avium ss. paratuberculosis, M. ap) is a contagious, chronic, and potentially fatal disease affecting the small intestine of ruminants.

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.
