  2. Rapid Assessment of Air Void System in Fresh Concrete

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 171FH2

    Proposal title: Rapid Assessment of Air Void System in Fresh Concrete Water expansion during freeze-thaw cycles can cause deterioration in concrete, leading to scaling, cracking, and crumbling over a period of years. Resistance to this damage is achieved with a system of voids formed by adding surfactants to the fresh concrete to stabilize air bubbles naturally entrained during mixing. The volume ...

  5. Ultra-High Efficiency Ethylene Scrubber to Reduce Cold Storage Costs of Produce

    SBC: Sonata Scientific            Topic: 813

    The importance of improving postharvest handling can be understood in terms of the primary impact of poor postharvest care--food loss. Technologies for improving postharvest handling focus on extending the shelf life of the fruit or vegetable while maintaining or improving upon the quality of the produce. A major achievement in prolonging produce storage life has been the implementation of cold st ...

  7. Topic 375: 18F PET Tracer For Imaging PD-L1 (Moonshot)

    SBC: SIBTECH, INC.            Topic: NCI

    New therapies, designed to enhance anti-tumor immunity are based on the blockade of the checkpoint components, either PD-1 on immune cells or PD-L1 on tumor cells. This strategy, while being spectacularly successful in some patients for some cancers, fails for many other patients. The expression of PD-L1 is highly dynamic and its prevalence within tumors can vary significantly over time. The curre ...
