  7. SBIR Phase II: Hemodynamic Optimization and Preclinical Assessment of a Shape Memory Polymer Wrap to Reduce Hemodialysis Access Site Failures

    SBC: VenoStent, Inc.            Topic: BM

    This SBIR Phase II project aims to develop an external stent to improve the quality and length of life for dialysis patients. Dialysis is the primary lifeline for patients with failed kidneys (i.e. End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD)). Unfortunately, our current standard of care, which provides no additional support or treatment to the artery-vein connections surgically created in the arm to initiate d ...

  9. SBIR Phase I: Development of lignin-based biodegradable plastic alloys via solvent free reactive extrusion

    SBC: MOBIUS PBC            Topic: CT

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will demonstrate the ability to create a new family of biobased and biodegradable polymers produced from agricultural and forestry waste streams that have the potential to mitigate landfill-bound, single-use plastics prevalent in agricultural operations. In conventional agricultural operations, farmers use plastic mulch films to block weeds a ...

    SBIR Phase I 2018 National Science Foundation
  10. STTR Phase II: Novel Analysis Tools for Production of Higher Indican Yielding Plants for Bio-based Indigo

    SBC: STONY CREEK COLORS, INC.            Topic: CT

    This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase II project will develop a new tool for the analysis of in situ indican precursor in indigo plants, which when combined with genomic analysis and genetic linkage mapping in selectively bred indigo crops, will lead to high indican yielding breeding parental lines and ultimately competitively price natural indigo dye. Additionally, characterization ...
