Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The American Cancer Society estimates that more than 1.5 million new cancer victims will be diagnosed this year in the U.S., and that ~572,000 Americans will die of cancer in 2011.1 More than 13 million Americans are living today with a history of cancer, and… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will demonstrate a more effective and economical process for extracting the chemical and energy resources from lignocellulosic biomass. Existing lignocellulosic pretreatment technologies use any of a variety of chemicals, heat, and mechanical… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: AuraSense is developing and commercializing NanoFlare technology as an enabling tool for detecting RNA levels in cells. Current methods for sensing of viral exposure require great amounts of virus particles to be present in blood, or extensive processing of blood to isolate virus-specific… more
Abstract:The objectives of this proposal are to further preclinical development of unique two-photon-activated photodynamic therapy (TPPDT) triads that incorporate a nontoxic porphyrin photosensitizer, a tumor targeting group, and an imaging functionality, providing for noninvasive image-guided treatment of… more
Abstract:This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase II project seeks to address the unmet need for high-throughput, cost effective tools to model the metastasis of brain cancer cells. The proposed Phase II work will achieve three key objectives necessary for broad adoption: 1) eliminating the use of… 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. This is a very vexing and routine problem for… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The proposed effort is aimed at the evaluation of a wireless electronic location system for reporting the location of individuals with Alzheimer's Disease and other Dementia (ADOD), who tend to wander or elope. This isa very vexing and routine problem for… more
Abstract:Over the past decade, rural school systems have seen a rapid expansion in the number of Hispanic/Latino students who enter school with limited and non-English speaking abilities, and rural schools are being challenged to accommodate this rapid population growth and the education of students with… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research Phase II project is focused on improving biofuel fermentation processes by developing phage products designed to inhibit bacteria that reduce biofuel fermentation efficiencies.

Abstract:Modern Synchrotrons are capable of significant per pulse x-ray flux, and time resolved pulse- probe experiments have become feasible. These experiments provide unique demands on x-ray monitors, as the beam position, flux and arrival time all potentially need to be recorded for each x-ray pulse. … 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.
