  1. AAV2-ASPA-Based Metabolic Intervention for Alzheimer's Disease

    SBC: ASKLEPIOS BIOPHARMACEUTICAL, INC.            Topic: NIA

    Abstract We propose to initiate preclinical development of a gene therapeutic targeted to Alzheimer's Disease. The World Health Organization's and Alzheimer's Disease International's report on Dementia (2012) recognizes that the global burden of AlzheimerDisease is forecast to worsen significantly with prevalence predicted to double every 20 years. Interventions that could prov ...

  2. A biomarker of aging as a predictor of kidney transplant function

    SBC: HEALTHSPAN DIAGNOSTICS, LLC            Topic: NIA

    ABSTRACT The number of kidney transplant candidates on the waiting list continues to increase each year, while the number of kidney donations remains stagnant. The enduring donor shortage compels clinicians to use kidneys from marginal donors, referred toas expanded criteria donors (ECD). ECD kidneys, obtained primarily from older donors, have a higher risk of delayed graft function and graft loss ...

  3. Accurate accessible cloud software for protein folding for molecular biologists

    SBC: DNASTAR, INC.            Topic: NIGMS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Most drugs interact with protein molecules to elicit a cellular response. Traditional drug discovery is a laborious and expensive experimental process, so computational approaches to assess protein function and to accelerate the discovery process are in high demand. Virtual drug screening and structure-based drug design represent computational approaches that c ...

  4. A Data-driven Approach to Improve Nursing Workflow and Patient-centered Care

    SBC: Transcendent International, LLC            Topic: NIMHD

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Patient-centered care recognizes patients' desires, opinions, and preferences as equal in importance to those of healthcare professionals, and emphasizes the need to educate and empower patients to play an active role in their care. The achievement of patient-centered care is associated with increased patient and provider satisfaction, improved health outc ...

  5. Affinity Capture Peptides for Clinical Mass Spectrometric Assays in Plasma

    SBC: AFFINERGY, LLC            Topic: NIGMS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): We will develop the first assay for multiplexed combinations of all 14 Bone Morphogenetic Proteins. Immunoassays are the gold standard for measuring proteins in clinical samples. However these antibody- based tests neither quantitate protein analyte variants, nor multiplex across large numbers of superfamily members. In addition, the availability of polyclona ...

  6. A Generic Cross-Platform Perception API for Unmanned Vehicles

    SBC: Honeybee Robotics, Ltd.            Topic: OSD13HS4

    ABSTRACT: Autonomous vehicles lack a standardized mechanism for seamless cross-platform sharing of testing frameworks and evaluations of basic tasks. The ability to execute common tests on various hardware platforms is essential in order to be able to e

  7. A microRNA based prognostic service that predicts melanoma metastasis likelihood

    SBC: RGENIX, INC.            Topic: NCI

    ABSTRACT Melanoma is a highly prevalent cancer that kills patients by metastasizing and destroying distal organs. To date, there are no effective molecular prognostic services available for stratifying patients that are at high risk for metastatic relapsein the adjuvant setting. By stratifying patients into high-risk versus low-risk, therapies could be tailored to those patients that stand to bene ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. An efficient directed cell migration assay

    SBC: Platypus Technologies, LLC            Topic: NIGMS

    Project Summary The goal of this SBIR project is to design and develop an efficient, automation- compatible Directed Cell Migration (DCM) 96-well Assay that distinguishes chemokinetic from chemotactic behavior. Cell migration is currently assayed using trans-membrane well inserts, microfluidic systems and various versions of scratch assays. These methods are expensive and provide inconsistent dat ...

  10. An Efficient Fully 3-Dimensional Cell Migration Assay

    SBC: Platypus Technologies, LLC            Topic: NIGMS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The goal of this SBIR project is to design and develop an efficient, physiologically relevant and cost-effective 96-well 3-D Cell Migration Assay that is compatible with mid-high throughput/high content assay platforms.Due to its importance in cancer and associated metastatic processes, cell migration is intensively studied and in vitro cell migration assays a ...
