  1. Directed Differentiation of Embryonic Stem Cells using Phage Displayed Ligands

    SBC: OCATA THERAPEUTICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The ability to culture human embryonic stem cells generated a great deal of excitement about their vast potential for treating a variety of human diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, neurological, retinal and skin disorders to name a few. Unlike adult stem cells, embryonic stem cells have indefinite growth potential and the potential to develop into any t ...

  2. High-Energy Imaging in Support of Radionuclide Therapy

    SBC: ALPHAMED, INC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The overall goal of this project is to design and build cameras that can efficiently detect and image isotopes that have gamma rays with energies that are typically beyond those effectively accessible with conventional cameras. There are no nuclear medicine clinical cameras, today, that combine high efficiency with the ability to image high-energy gamma rays. ...

  3. SCALE: Spontaneous Collaboration Assistant and Linking Engine

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: ST061004

    Static organization charts and standard processes define roles, methods, and authority in useful ways for common missions. But these same, rigid structures force the organization to behave inefficiently, often ineffectively on problems in new domains, problems requiring new coordination methods and ad hoc teams. What is needed to facilitate rapid formation of effective human networks is a system ...

  4. Reagentless Immunosensors Based on Biofunctionalized Nanotubes

    SBC: EIC LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Our aim is to develop an inexpensive and portable nanotechnology-based immunosensor and instrument platform for rapid detection of presence or exposure to bioterror agents in air, water, contaminated surfaces, forensic samples, food and body fluids through identification of protein toxins and microorganisms. The proposed approach employs single or multiple coni ...

  5. Restoration of Skin Structure and Function Post-Wounding

    SBC: FirstString Research, Inc            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The wound repair process in skin is initiated immediately after an injury and induces a cascade of events including inflammation, proliferation, and scar production/tissue remodeling. One of the common complications of wound healing is excessive scarring, leading to undesirable changes in skin mechanical function, as well as cosmetic disfiguration. The adverse ...

  6. Integrated Maglev Pump-Oxygenator for Respiratory Support

    SBC: LEVITRONIX, LLC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The death rate due to respiratory disease has increased nearly 20% in the United States since 1979, surpassing virtually all other types of disease. Adult respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) alone afflicts approximately 150,000 patients every year with a mortality rate between 30 and 70%. Current treatment is limited to extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECM ...

  7. Tools for High Throughput Protein Crystallization and Structure Determination

    SBC: Mitegen, LLC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Project Summary: The NIH has committed substantial resources to both traditional and - through its Protein Structure Initiative - high-throughput approaches to protein structure determination, and similar commitments have been made in Europe and Asia. A survey of the results for soluble proteins shows that the main bottlenecks are obtaining high-quality crystal ...

  8. Research Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience

    SBC: Perception Research Systems Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): As the use of combined research modalities (EEC, fMRI and various behavioral assays) has become increasingly common in cognitive neuroscience studies, researchers have had to struggle with the lack of a single solution for interfacing these systems with their experimental control software. This presents a barrier to the efficient progress of much NIH-funded beh ...

  9. Smart Optical Probe for Guidance of Fine Needle Biopsy

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Fine needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) is a cost-effective and rapid procedure that uses a syringe to sample fluid from a cyst or remove clusters of cells from a solid mass for diagnostic purposes. The effectiveness of FNAB is operator-dependent and the diagnostic yield can be low, especially for adipose-rich and masses where the percentage of non-diagnostics asp ...

  10. TESTS OF ATTENTION AND MEMORY IN INDIVIDUALS WITH INTELLECTUAL LIMITATIONS

    SBC: Praxis            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Clinicians and investigators alike rely on tests of attention and memory in a host of fields -- among them psychology, neurology, psychiatry, pediatrics, gerontology, and epidemiology. Yet one segment of the population has been passed by in these assessment efforts: individuals who have limited verbal communication abilities, a group that includes persons with ...
