  1. Advanced Assessment to Accelerate Diagnostic Skill Acquisition

    SBC: Parallel Consulting, LLC            Topic: NIGMS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Current approaches to medical education produce new physicians with insufficient clinical competency to practice effectively with limited supervision, which has serious implications for patient outcomes during hospitaloff hours. Up to 70% of patients admitted to a hospital are admitted on nights or weekends, when staffing is low and residents may be in charge o ...

  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 ...

  3. A molecularly targeted pre- and post-exposure vaccine for anthrax

    SBC: VLP BIOTECH, INC.            Topic: NIAID

    DESCRIPTION provided by applicant We have shown that immunization of rabbits with multiple antigenic peptides MAPs displaying sequence from domain of protective antigen PA elicit antibodies specific for a linear determinant within the loop of PA that mediate potent neutralization of lethal toxin LeTx in vitro We have now shown in two separate large studies that antibodies aga ...

  4. Amplification-free megabase target-enrichment for next-generation sequencing

    SBC: Mission Bio, Inc.            Topic: NHGRI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Target enrichment for next-generation sequencing enables researchers to reduce the burden of sequence data analysis, obtain higher levels of statistical significance by examining more genomes and increase sequencing coverage depth. The goal of this STTR proposal is to develop and commercialize a novel technology capable of amplification-free megabase target seq ...

  5. Anti-Pseudomonas Immunotherapy and Targeted Drug Delivery

    SBC: SORRENTO THERAPEUTICS, INC.            Topic: NIAID

    DESCRIPTION provided by applicant Antibody therapy for serious bacterial infections using polyclonal immune antitoxin or anti capsule horse serum actually predates small molecule antibiotic use However for reasons of safety convenient empirical use and cost the development of broader spectrum antibiotics rapidly supplanted the use of immune serum But drug resistance is quickly reducing th ...

  7. A smart needle guide template for MRI-guided transperineal prostate biopsy

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) and the Surgical Navigation and Robotics Laboratory (SNR) at Brigham and Women's Hospital (BWH) propose to develop and test a Smart Template to guide transperineal targeted prostate biopsiesand subsequent therapy under magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The project aims to solve the problem of poor diagnostic yield in prostate b ...

  8. AutoRegister: A system for enhancing the accuracy of tumor change detection

    SBC: CORTICOMETRICS LLC            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This project proposes to build an integrated software-based system for enhancing the accuracy of tumor change detection. The intent of the system, called AutoRegister, which is to be deployed on a clinical magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanner platform, is to automate the alignment of a patient's brain scan with that of a prior scan, such that subseque ...

  10. C/EBP-beta PEPTIDES FOR THE TREATMENT OF LUNG INJURY AND FIBROSIS

    SBC: XFIBRA, LLC            Topic: NHLBI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Activation of lung myofibroblasts (LMF) is responsible for the development of lung fibrosis in chronic lung diseases of all causes and remarkably, LMF clearance by apoptosis may prevent development of lung fibrosis andlung injury, and possibly allow recovery from reversal of lung fibrosis. There is full agreement among tissue fibrosis experts that inhibiting o ...
