  1. STTR Phase I: Rapid Blood Cleansing Device to Combat Infection

    SBC: Path Ex, Inc.            Topic: BM

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project is to develop a dialysis-like platform for selective bacterial separation and removal from blood. This technology could potentially serve as a novel blood cleansing therapy for the treatment of disease, including sepsis. Sepsis, a life threatening organ dysfunction caused by infection, is a co ...

  2. SBIR Phase I: Development, Optimization and Analysis of Poly (Carboxy Betaine) Bio-conjugates to L-Asparagianse as PEGylation Alternatives

    SBC: Furtim Therapeutics LLC            Topic: BM

    This SBIR Phase I project aims to develop a superior alternative to the current frontline treatment for children?s Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL). The primary treatment option has a host of negative side effects resulting from the use of poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) conjugated to the L-asparaginase enzyme. Antibodies made against this drug can cause the body to eliminate it rapidly or result in ...

  3. SBIR Phase I: Emissions Assessment For A Natural-Gas Fired Furnace For Melting Iron

    SBC: Mazdak International Inc.            Topic: MN

    The broad impact of this SBIR Phase I project is in the development of a new cokeless process to melt iron and scrap steel while meeting stringent environmental regulations. The process being investigated will potentially shift the paradigm of difficult pollution control to the use of a clean fuel, such as natural gas. It has the potential to cut down 75% of the greenhouse gas emissions by compari ...

  4. SBIR Phase I: KONTAK Hydrogen Liquid Storage Reactor

    SBC: KONTAK, LLC            Topic: CT

    This SBIR Phase I Project is designed to enable the wide acceptance of hydrogen as a green alternative to gasoline and diesel. To accomplish this goal, a way had to be found to safely and economically store, transport and use hydrogen. A class of organic compounds has been discovered that can store hydrogen, release it as needed, and form a recyclable residual compounds. By holding hydrogen on a l ...

  5. SBIR Phase I: Advanced alkaline electrolyzer stack for hydrogen peroxide onsite production

    SBC: Peroxygen Systems, Inc.            Topic: CT

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) project is a significant advance in the production of hydrogen peroxide. The project, if successful, will yield an on-site electrolytic generation method that reduces the cost of peroxide production by up to 50% compared to the traditional centralized chemical process. By reducing cost, hydrogen peroxide can ...

  6. SBIR Phase I: Air-coupled MEMS-based Ultrasound Transducer for Assessment of Tympanic Membrane Motion

    SBC: OTONEXus MEDICAL TECHNOLOGIES, Inc.            Topic: BM

    This SBIR Phase I project will focus on a novel medical ultrasound device for the accurate diagnosis of middle ear infections. The device uses a small transducer that transmits ultrasound energy into the ear canal to determine whether a middle ear infection is present, and whether an antibiotic is appropriate. The focus will be to design and optimize an air-coupled MEMS (microelectromechanical sys ...

  7. SBIR Phase I: Rationally-designed, modular imaging agents for the targeted detection of tumors.

    SBC: RJSBIO INC            Topic: BM

    This NSF SBIR Phase I project takes a unique holistic approach to both tumor imaging and cancer drug delivery. This approach harnesses cancer cell proteins already in the body to allow selective delivery of tumor imaging agents or cancer-killing drugs to, and into, cancer cells. By choosing cancer-specific targeting proteins, the drugs will be transported primarily into cancer cells and undesirabl ...

  8. SBIR Phase I: A personalizable e-reading app that supports science learning

    SBC: Squid Books, LLC            Topic: EA

    This SBIR Phase I project will produce an innovative reading application, to support science learning. Although the science textbook is a central curricular resource, this resource is often inaccessible and difficult to read. Science textbooks are syntactically (grammatically) and semantically (word meaning) complex. Specifically, elementary and secondary science texts are often written 3 to 5 yea ...

  9. A Collaborative Interface for Teacher-Student Interaction in Virtual Environments

    SBC: STRANGE LOOP GAMES INC.            Topic: edIES17R0005

    In prior projects, including a 2015 ED/IES SBIR award, the team developed two immersive multiplayer virtual game environments. In Eco and Colony, middle school students collaboratively apply scientific practices within the virtual worlds to address challenges, such as the availability of resources and energy and maintaining clean water. With this Phase I funding, the team is developing a prototype ...

  10. Interactive Administrator Dashboard for Improving School-Wide Behavior Supports

    SBC: Liveschool Inc.            Topic: edIES15R0005

    In prior research and development, the project team developed LiveSchool, an online platform to track student behavior. With this Phase I funding, the team will develop and test a prototype of an administrator dashboard. The dashboard will generate reports on individual student behavior patterns across classes and on the prevalence of behavioral issues across different teachers. The dashboard will ...
