  2. STTR Phase I: A noninvasive gene expression based classifier for oral cancer

    SBC: ARPHION, LTD            Topic: BC

    This Small Business Technology Transfer Research (STTR) Phase I project will focus on oral cancer (OC), a disease that strikes over 30,000 new patients each year in the US resulting in about 8,000 deaths and even more disfigurements. This costs hundreds of millions of dollars in medical fees. A surgical biopsy with histopathology diagnosis is routine for oral tumor assessment and about one million ...

  3. SBIR Phase I: Safe Li-ion battery with low temperature molten salt electrolyte

    SBC: INVENTEK CORP            Topic: BC

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project aims to resolve a glaring safety issue of Li-ion battery for grid energy storage. Li-ion has experienced a number of high profile failures that lead to fires. In spite of its high-rate capability, long life and efficiency, the excessive cost and inadequate safety of Li-ion will limit its broader application for grid storage. The safety ...

  6. SBIR Phase I: Designing New Economical High-Temperature Aluminum Superalloys

    SBC: NANOAL LLC            Topic: MI

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project involves development of a new class of lightweight aluminum superalloys to replace much heavier cast iron in automobile brake rotors. There is a large market for brake rotors, estimated worldwide at $10 billion. Replacing four cast iron brake rotors in a typical sedan will reduce its weight by about 80 pounds, which translates into significan ...

  7. SBIR Phase I: Efficient Marketplace for Procedural Documentation


    This Phase I project's broader/commercial impact will be marketable software as a service that should generate tax revenue based on sales and increase the number of jobs available to U.S. residents. Research says that "as much as two-thirds of the value created by new Internet offerings has been captured as consumer surplus." Web-based WYSIWYG XML editors are currently available in the market ...
