  1. NIDA- Getting Started in Drug Abuse Research: A Multidisciplinary Introduction

    SBC: TERRA NOVA LEARNING SYSTEMS            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Drug abuse is a serious problem in the U.S. that destroys families, lowers workplace productivity, contributes to spiraling healthcare costs, and causes premature deaths. As noted in a 2003 Institute of Medicine (IOM) report, far too few psychiatry residents are choosing clinical research careers. The same is true of graduate level trainees in psychology, nursi ...

  2. Impact of Dialysis Workflow Decision Support on Conformance to KDOQI Guidelines

    SBC: VISONEX, LLC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): KDOQI clinical practice guidelines (CPGs) improve dialysis patient care but their complexity makes them difficult to integrate into the dialysis clinic. Previous technological solutions Electronic medical records, Clinical Decision Support Systems (CDS) have failed because they were not integrated into the clinic workflow. Visonex LLC proposes to build and t ...

  3. Dynamic Light Scattering Instrumentation Using Field Programmable Gate Array-based Digital Signal Processing

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    An existing low-cost FPGA-based processing platform will be demonstrated with fiber-coupling to single-photon detectors, to perform photon-arrival time stamping with

  4. High Efficiency, Large-area, 1550 nm InGaAs Photodiodes

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A stable, well characterized InGaAs materials growth and photodetector fabrication process will be used to fabricate matched photodiodes optimized for balanced homodyne detection. The 1-mm-diameter p-i-n photodetectors will be manufactured back-illuminated with a 5-micron absorber, allowing residual light to reflect off the front-side metal to make a double pass through the active layer. Ultra-hig ...

  5. Efficient Low-Dark-Count Detector for Photon Counting

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Voxtel has demonstrated efficient high-speed photon counting with thresholded linear-mode avalanche photodiode (APD) receivers using multi-gain-stage InGaAs/InAIAs APDs. In contrast to Geiger APDs, thresholded photon-counting linear APD receivers are thought not to suffer afterpulsing, and can support maximum count rates (MCR) up to 2 or 3 orders of magnitude faster than Geiger APDs. However, the ...

  6. Screening of glucocorticoid receptor small-molecule regulators using cognate site

    SBC: VISTAMOTIF LLC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Glucocorticoid receptor (GR) is a member of the nuclear receptor (NR) superfamily that is instrumental in regulating genes involved in inflammation and immunosuppression and represents a major therapeutic target for asthma, arthritis, lupus, and other chronic disorders. A major challenge in GR drug design is the necessity to enhance GR-mediated anti-inflammator ...

  7. EMG biofeedback with AMES

    SBC: AMES TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The long-range goal of this project is to restore functional movement to low-functioning stroke patients using a novel therapeutic regimen and robotic device called AMES, an acronym for Assisted Movement with Enhanced Sensation. In AMES-as it is currently used-the patient's affected limb is moved cyclically with the AMES robotic device while the sensation of ...

  8. A Photoelectrocatalytic Device for Removing MTBE from Water

    SBC: AQUAMOST, LLC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): There are currently between 500,000 and 2.5 million leaking underground fuel storage tanks in the United States. Soluble organic compounds that enter the groundwater from these tanks can be a major hazard to public health and the environment. Two contaminate classes are of particular concern: (1) BTEX fuel additives consisting of benzene, ethyl benzene, toluene ...

  9. Pharmacological Impact of 3-Dimensional Extracellular Matrix on Tumor Cells

    SBC: Bellbrook Labs, LLC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): There is a strong need in drug discovery for cellular assays that better predict human responses to drugs. A key technical hurdle has been the difficulty of incorporating 3-dimensional extracellular matrix into a powerful assay format that is compatible with the high throughput approaches used for early drug discovery. In this proposal we intend to develop the ...

  10. Enhanced ADP Immunoassay for Multimode Kinase Detection

    SBC: Bellbrook Labs, LLC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Kinases are the most intensively screened class of enzymes being targeted for therapeutic intervention because of their central role in regulating the function of other biomolecules. Strategies for developing selective kinase inhibitors are evolving rapidly, creating a demand for more flexible methods for measuring kinase activity in high throughput screening c ...
