Abstract:Diffusion barriers used in Nb3Sn wire are currently fabricated by wrapping Ta sheet into a tube with signifigant overlap. The result of current practice is non-uniform deformation in the Ta sheet as it thins by wire drawing because of non-uniform grain size and texture. In addition, a signifigant… more

Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): We propose to develop a contrast agent for photoacoustic imaging targeted to the receptors of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGFR), so it can be accumulated and retained in tumor endothelial cells by VEGFR-mediated endocytosis. VEGFR are over expressed in… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Currently available anti-angiogenic drugs inhibit VEGF/VEGFR signaling, which leads to transient vascular regression followed by rebound of drug-resistant vasculature, which significantly decrease the therapeutic efficacy of very expensive anti-angiogenic… 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.
