  1. A simple assay system for rapid detection of circulating tumor cells

    SBC: TELOVISION, LLC            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION provided by applicant Metastasis or dissemination of primary tumor cells is the major cause of mortality in cancer patients Circulating tumor cells CTCs in the bloodstream are key players in the establishment of metastatic tumors Recent studies demonstrated that the number of CTCs present in patient blood directly correlate with cancer progression recurrence and survival rate ...

  5. Development of low cost method for fabrication of metal neutron guides

    SBC: Dawn Research Inc            Topic: 06b

    Neutron scattering is one of the most useful methods of studying the structure and dynamics of matter. Therefore, a number of new large neutron facilities have recently being constructed, upgraded or planned around the world. Examples include the new, 1.4 billion-dollars Spallation Neutron Source (SNS) at DOEs Oak Ridge National Laboratory and upgrades of ORNLs High- Flux Isotope Reactor and N ...

  6. Non-ATP competitive inhibitors of cyclin dependent kinases as cancer therapeutics

    SBC: PPI PHARMACEUTICALS, LLC            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): As cancer is one of the leading causes of death in the United States with some sub-types remaining essentially untreatable, expansion of available drug targets will provide significant new options for the development ofmore effective antineoplastic agents. The major goal of this project is to apply a unique drug discovery strategy to cancer drug development. Th ...

  7. A Millimeter-wave Tunable Cavity for Ultra-sensitive Solids and Liquids DNP-NMR at Low Budget

    SBC: DOTY SCIENTIFIC, INC.            Topic: NIA

    ? DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): NMR is probably the most powerful and widely used analytical technique for structure determination and function elucidation of molecules of all types, but it suffers from low sensitivity, particularly for insoluble biological macromolecules. Dynamic Nuclear Polarization (DNP) with Magic Angle Spinning (MAS) has recently demonstrated S/N gains exceeding t ...

  8. Multi-Blot Western Device

    SBC: YC BIOELECTRIC LLC            Topic: NIGMS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The long-term objective of this STTR project is to commercialize the protein multi-blot Western device, which contributes to improving the productivity and accuracy of conventional Western blot analysis. Although Western blotting has been used for more than three decades, this labor-and-cost demanding technique remains a key routine for a majority of life scien ...

  9. Minimal piggyBac vectors for chromatin integration

    SBC: EXSCIEN CORPORATION            Topic: NIGMS

    In this grant, we describe novel transposon piggyBac vectors engineered to deliver transgenes as efficiently as currently available piggyBac systems, but with significantly less helper DNA co-delivered into the host genome. To generate these plasmids, we first identified an important and previously unreported aspect of transposon biology, that the full-length terminal domains required for successf ...

  10. The Emotion Builder: An Intervention for Emotional Deficits after Brain Injury

    SBC: EMOTED, INC.            Topic: NICHD

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): People with traumatic brain injury (TBI) are often plagued with socio-emotional deficits that include difficulty identifying emotions in oneself (alexithymia), difficulty recognizing other peoples' emotions (impaired affect recognition), and empathy loss. These highly prevalent deficits, ranging between 39-70% of the moderate to severe TBI population, are ...
