  1. High Performance Electric-Field Sensor Based on Enhanced Electro-Optic Polymer Refilled Slot Photonic Crystal Waveguides

    SBC: Omega Optics, Inc.            Topic: AF11BT01

    ABSTRACT: This Phase II STTR research proposal aims to demonstrate an antenna coupled phase modulator based on an Electro-optic (EO) polymer refilled slot photonic crystal waveguide (PCW) for operation in the Q band. The goal is to detect field strengths of 100uW/m^2 in an Intensity Modulation Direct Detection (IMDD) scheme using subwavelength antennas. The EO polymer is the SEO125 provided by Dr ...

  3. Voxel-based Fusion (VOXION)

    SBC: 21ST CENTURY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF13AT01

    ABSTRACT: In ISR applications, multiple sensors can be employed to achieve more accurate parameters of interest on targets, improving discrimination and detection. But, the proliferation of sensor systems has created a large volume of multi-sensor data across a number of physical spectra. These resulting measurements can be so disparate that traditional aggregation methods perform poorly given h ...

  6. Ex vivo purging strategy for treatment of multiple myeloma

    SBC: Dnatrix, Inc            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The ultimate goal of this application is to develop a novel ex vivo purging method using myxoma virus (MYXV), a rabbit-specific poxvirus, to improve the clinical outcomes in treatment of multiple myeloma (MM). MM is aclonal plasma cell malignancy that has to date resisted essentially all therapeutic strategies. Currently, the standard of care for patients wit ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Mucins in the Diagnosis and Prognosis of Pancreatic Diseases

    SBC: Sanguine Diagnostics And Therapeutics, Inc.            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Due to its asymptomatic nature and lack of methods for early detection, gt 80% of pancreatic cancer (PC) patients present with an unresectable primary tumor with distant metastasis at the time of diagnosis. While the overall 5 year survival rate of pancreatic cancer is dismal, significantly better outcomes have been reported for smaller tumors detected at an e ...

  9. Screening for Novel CBS Inhibitors for Cancer Therapy

    SBC: CBS THERAPEUTICS, INC.            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Recent studies of the applicants support the role of the endogenous gaseous biological mediator hydrogen sulfide (H2S) in colorectal cancer: selective upregulation of cystathionine-b-synthase (CBS) and the subsequent production of H2S in colonic cancer cells serves as a pro-survival factor by stimulating tumor cell bioenergetics, growth, proliferation, migratio ...

  10. Novel Pharmacotherapeutic Bioadhesive Patch for Oral Ulcerations

    SBC: POST OAK PHARMACEUTICALS, INC.            Topic: NIDCR

    Project Summary Oral ulceration is one of the most commonly encountered oral diseases, with an estimated prevalence of 4% in the USA. Managing large or multiple ulcers that are caused by diseases of unknown etiology, such as erosive lichen planus or aphthous ulcers which affect 25% of the population worldwide, is also a challenge to dentists and specialists. Ulceration of the oral mucosa can caus ...
