The proposed research objectives are to (1) discover cost-effective, commercially scalable methods allowing the… more
Abstract:The Augusta founding laboratories have used cutting edge genetic technologies and shRNA screening methodologies to uncover the ROS receptor tyrosine kinase as a cancer survival gene. Studies from other laboratories have drawn a clear link between ROS kinase activity and the development and/or… more
Abstract:This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project aims to fabricate anti-reflective coatings (ARC) for solar energy applications. The approach is to use a convective and evaporation-induced assembly to deposit organized nanostructures and create sub-wavelength quasi repeating… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Tissue probe measurements and imaging show that tumor hypoxia is common in many cancers including head and neck cancer, cervical cancer, prostate cancer and many other solid tumors. Tumors with low oxygen concentrations
are resistant to radiation treatment. New… more
Abstract:Shallow lagoon systems are the most common form of engineered domestic wastewater treatment in the United States and the world. Municipalities, particularly smaller rural communities, use this low cost treatment method. These lagoon systems are generally effective at reducing biochemical oxygen… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The proposed effort is aimed at the development and evaluation of a wireless electronic location system for reporting the location of individuals with autism and other cognitive disabilities, who may wander or elope. Th
is is a very vexing and routine problem for… more
Abstract:This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase I project will develop a new type of nanostructured substrate for applications in arsenide detection using surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS). Arsenic is a well known toxic chemical which exists in both nature and industrial processes, and its… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Today 70% of patients with advanced ovarian cancer will achieve clinically complete remission with front line treatments of carboplatin and paclitaxel, unfortunately a majority these patients are destined to relapse and
eventually die of disease within 12-18… 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.
