The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Advanced Technologies for Discrete-Parts Manufacturing

    SBC: 4D VALUE ADDED SOLUTIONS TEAM            Topic: DLA07001

    Through efforts on an NSF-funded project, MSOE has demonstrated the ability to produce castings at a resolution and complexity finer than known metal casting processes. The project, “Design and Fabrication of Components with Optimized Lattice Microstructures,” began in 2002 with initial efforts focused upon what casting processes were available and what would be required to produce complex la ...

  2. A Photoelectrocatalytic Device for Removing Ammonia from Water

    SBC: AQUAMOST, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Recirculating systems are expected to play a key role in the expansion of US aquaculture production. Recirculating systems allow year-around production of aquatic organisms under controlled conditions, require very little water and land, have minimal effluent discharge, and can be set up almost anywhere, including in cities close to major markets. These systems can also be operated in a biosecure ...

  3. Youth Map: A software based program to increase service learning quality

    SBC: Community Knowledgebase            Topic: N/A

    Service-learning is community service performed through schools that is integrated with curriculum-based instruction and individual reflection. In 2004, 28 percent of all K-12 public institutions were involved in some type of service-learning, affecting approximately 4.7 million K-12 students in 23,000 public schools. The goals of service learning generally are theorized to include improved citiz ...

  4. A software based program to increase service learning quality

    SBC: Community Knowledgebase            Topic: N/A

    This project is to develop Youth Map a software package and curriculum that enables high school students to create network models of community issues and institutions in order to increase cognitive skills and learn content related to science the environment and civic engagement.

  5. HTS Assays for Modulators of GPCR Signaling

    SBC: Bellbrook Labs, LLC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): More than 50% of drugs on the market target G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs). Among the most important of these are drugs used to treat neurological disorders, such as pain relievers, antidepressants and anti-psychotics, as well drugs used for neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson's disease and Alzheimer's disease. The relatively recent discovery of a ...

  6. A Microfluidic Chemotaxis High Throughput System

    SBC: Bellbrook Labs, LLC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Neutrophil recruitment is a central component of inflammation, and there is intense focus on inhibiting the process both for chronic inflammatory disorders and for conditions where inflammation plays a contributory role, such as atherosclerosis. Chemotaxis - the movement of cells aligned with a chemical gradient - is the fundamental process underlying neutrophi ...

  7. Arrayed Microfluidic Device for Reconstituted Tissue Assays

    SBC: Bellbrook Labs, LLC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): There is a strong need in drug discovery for cellular assays that better predict human responses to drugs. A key technical hurdle has been the difficulty of incorporating complex tissue architecture and cellular microenvironments into an assay format that is compatible with the high throughput approaches used for early drug discovery. In this proposal we propos ...

  8. A novel process for converting wood chips into improved composite boards, chemicals and fuels


    "We have developed a new pretreatment (patent pending) with red pine for medium density fiberboard (MDF) production, which compared to controls was more resistant to water infiltration in 24 hour swelling and water adsorption tests. Structural integrity after water exposure is an important property of MDF and other wood-based composites. Enhanced water resistance was obtained concurrent with carbo ...

  9. Human Embryonic Stem Cell-Derived Cardiomyocytes for In Vitro Drug Screening


    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Drug-induced QT prolongation is a common cardiac disorder associated with an increased risk for the ventricular arrhythmia torsades de pointes and sudden death. Recognition of this condition has led to increased focus on cardiac toxicity in drug development. The FDA now requires cardiac safety studies prior to drug approval. Since compound development costs a d ...

  10. An Innovative Cost-Effective Active Warning System for Improved Safety at Rural Railroad Crossings

    SBC: Central Signal LLC            Topic: N/A

    More than 60% of U.S. highway-railroad crossing accident fatalities occur at passive rural railroad crossings. Federal and State highway authorities are searching for effective, safe and low-cost active signal devices for these crossings. The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) estimates that it would cost more than $14 billion to upgrade all passive grade crossings with conventional active rail ...
