Abstract:When the stable samarium-152 (Sm-152) isotope is irradiated, radioactive samarium-153 (Sm-153) is produced through a neutron capture reaction in yields of only about 2%, and this radioactive, therapeutic isotope (Sm-153) cannot be separated from the much more abundant (~98%) non-radioactive isotope… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Tremendous advances in genomics during the past two decades hold great potential for the development of new health innovations. For this potential to be realized in the form of advances in biomedical research and novelprevention, diagnosis, treatment and disease… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Drug developers desperately need better tools in the laboratory to improve the 90% failure rate of drugs in clinical trials. Liver toxicity is still the leading cause of drug failure, despite extensive preclinical testing in surrogate animal species. HemoShear… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The frequent inability of in vitro assays and animal models to accurately predict human response to a new drug candidate results in costly drug development failures. HemoShear has developed a platform technology for biodiscovery and drug pharmacology screening… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): A novel approach to discover selective small molecule inhibitors of FABP4 and FABP5 for the treatment of metabolic diseases The Western diet and lifestyle has brought an epidemic of health problems collectively referredto as metabolic syndrome. Obesity plays a… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Despite the availability of a safe and effective prophylactic vaccine for hepatitis B virus (HBV), each year a significant number of new infections are reported to the CDC in the United States. Worldwide more than 2 billion people have been infected with HBV,… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Introduction of small interfering RNAs (siRNAs) into cells with transfection reagents results in potent and specific gene silencing by RNA interference (RNAi). Unfortunately, while siRNA-based drugs represent a potentially significant therapeutic paradigm, the… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Project Summary / Abstract Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease affecting motor neurons in the central nervous system. Degeneration of the motor neurons results in paralysis and eventual death, usually due to… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This Phase 1 SBIR will develop a non-invasive alternative to radionuclide shunt patency testing for evaluating Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus (NPH) patients with suspected shunt malfunction. Hydrocephalus is a disorder of cerebrospinal fluid dynamics that is… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This Phase 1 SBIR will develop Continuous Real Time (CRT) ShuntCheck, the first portable, non- invasive device for real time, continuous monitoring of flow in CSF shunts. This device will result in improved clinicalmanagement of hydrocephalus by providing a… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This Phase 2 SBIR will provide and clinically validate the first portable, non-invasive diagnostic test for differentiating intermittently flowing patent shunts from occluded or partially occluded shunts - ShuntCheck- Micro-Pumper. This device will result in… more
Abstract:Purpose: In prior research, prosocial behaviors in grade school have been correlated with later academic achievement while anti-social behaviors have been associated with later poor academic achievement and deviance. To help teachers monitor students' social behavior, this project will develop a… more
Abstract:Purpose: Prior research indicates that reading difficulties in childhood become more problematic as students move to middle and high school where increasingly challenging material must be learned. Although some older students still struggle with decoding, many more have difficulty constructing… 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.
