  2. 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 ...

  4. A novel 3D cell culture human uterine contractility assay for high-throughput scr

    SBC: CHEMOSEN3D, INC.            Topic: NICHD

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Several disorders in reproductive medicine are results of changes in smooth muscle contractile activity. Increased myometrial contraction can lead to preterm labor, which affects 12% of the US population. However, the mechanisms involved in the transition from uterine quiescence to contractility at the onset of labor are not well-known. As a result, the managem ...
