Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): We devised a new generation, highly sensitivity method to diagnosis peripheral neuropathy early, when the probability for reversal is greatest. Cancer chemotherapy and diabetes are the most common causes of neuropathy in the USA. Both cause decreased sweating,… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Our proposal describes an elegant device called the Bumps that quantifies touch sensation on the fingers at low micron levels. The objectives are to diagnose peripheral neuropathy near its onset, when the possibility for reversal is highest, and to monitor either… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Epilepsy affects three million Americans and fifty million people worldwide. Drug resistant epilepsy (DRE) affects over one third of all people with epilepsy, and may lead to unemployment, injury, and death. TrigeminalNerve Stimulation (TNS) is an emerging… more
Abstract:Title: Development of a Stand-Biased School Desk to Reduce Childhood Obesity According to the state demographer for Texas (Eschbach and Fonseca, 2009), childhood obesity has more than doubled in the past 20 years, and overweight/obesity rates for Texas fourth graders are twice the national average… more
Abstract:A technology that enables the analysis of many proteins from a single drop of blood, rapidly and accurately has been developed. The instrumentation has been fully developed and launched as a commercial product. Initial applications have been developed in the field of autoimmune disease. In this… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Early disease detection through percutaneous needle biopsies is considered the gold standard for cancer diagnoses and thus for obtaining good health outcomes. This project seeks to ameliorate health disparities by making it possible for general practitioners and… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project addresses two roadblocks to reducing the cost of wind energy: the labor-intensive construction process, and size limitations imposed by road or rail transport for turbine components. The former issue drives up manufacturing costs and… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Positron Emission Tomography (PET) is a molecular imaging modality that utilizes radiolabeled molecules ( probes ) to target and measure biological processes. Basic scientists can use the same probes to examine cells and mice as they do in patients to visualize… more
Abstract:We are seeking to develop a new technological approach to managing and harvesting citrus in High Density Groves, which is an emerging production system that offers solutions to the Florida citrus industries battles with pest, diseases, and high cost of labor. This multi-function platform will be… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will develop a novel low-cost, high-performance fabric suitable for long service life helium inflatable structures, including aerostats and airships. Traditional fabrics for lighter-than-air (LTA) applications utilize woven polyester or vectran… 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.
