  1. Individualized Fatigue Management Program Technology for Trucking Operations

    SBC: PULSAR INFORMATICS, INC.            Topic: 091FM1

    Individual differences in vulnerability to sleep loss and fatigue from extended work hours and night work are a substantial problem in transportation policy making, work schedule development, fatigue risk management strategies, and prediction of performance impairment in real-world operations (Van Dongen et al. 2003; Mollicone et al. 2010). Our group was the first to document the considerable magn ...

  5. Development of Small Antimicrobial Peptide Mimics as Drug-Resistant and Susceptib

    SBC: PolyMedix, Inc.            Topic: NIAID

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Malaria is a global disease causing gt 500 million clinical cases and gt 1 million deaths each year. Moreover, drug resistant Plasmodium falciparum has become a major problem. Therefore, it is crucial to discover new classes of drugs for anti-malarial drug design to combat resistant parasites. We propose that antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) may provide the basis ...
