Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR/STTR) project targets the development of a novel ultra-high capacity sorbents and technology for CO2 capture and separation from combustion-derived flue gas. In the US, coal-fired power plants represent about 42% of the electricity generated but… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Over three-quarters of Hispanic women in the US are overweight or obese. High rates of excess body weight place these women at heightened risk for a variety of illnesses and health conditions, such as Type 2 diabetes, coronary heart disease, and osteoarthritis.… more
Abstract:Title: Mobile Telecare for Underserved African-American Elders with Heart Failure Abstract Older adults who are dually eligible for Medicare and Medicaid are among the sickest and poorest individuals covered in either program. Although they have a significantly higher prevalence of chronic… 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

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.
