  1. On-board Electrochemical Oxygen Generator for Live Shipments of Wild Seafood and Aquaculture Products

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: 87

    U.S. live fish exports are growing and have further potential for growth. In 2009 live fish U.S. exports were on the order of $44 million. In 2012, there was unique opportunity in the live eel export market and there were reports of $100-150 million in exports in that species alone. The overall goal of this project is to provide active oxygenation during the transportation of live aquaculture prod ...

  4. Compact, Efficient and Economic Soil Steam Disinfestation

    SBC: Precision Combustion, Inc.            Topic: 84

    The U.S. strawberry crop centered on 40,000 acres in California supplies 30% of the worlds strawberries, a marvel of American agricultural productivity. It is also emblematic of fumigation-supported high U.S. agricultural productivity, achieving soil sterilization of soil-borne pests necessary for high yield by using as much as 400 pounds per acre (at an average cost of $3500/acre) of ozone-deplet ...

  5. Web FluidMath

    SBC: FLUIDITY SOFTWARE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The project team is developing a prototype of WebFluidMath, a software programto support students who are learning basic algebra principles. To use the Web FluidMath program, students will write math expressions and make drawings on the screen of apen-enabled tablet computer (e.g., iPad, Android, Microsoft Surface). The software will recognize the handwritten math formulae and generate solutions ...

  6. Nomethiazoles Harnessing GABA and NO mimetic activity for Alzheimer's therapy

    SBC: sGC Pharma Inc.            Topic: NIA

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Alzheimer's disease (AD) occurs in one out of eight Americans of age 65 and affects 43% of the elderly over 85. Current FDA-approved drugs only provide symptomatic relief of AD. There is a pressing need to discover newdisease-modifying medications. AD is multifactorial in origin and progression. A drug attenuating several underlying factors is a preferred ...

  7. A Novel Insulin Pathway Agonist for Alzheimer's Disease

    SBC: MEDCHEM PARTNERS LLC            Topic: NIA

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Even though the association of -amyloid peptide (A ) deposition and Alzheimer's Disease (AD) underpins the major hypothesis for disease progression and possibly causation and several drugs addressing the formation or removal of -amyloid plaques have entered clinical trials, no effective therapy exists to date for AD. This reality calls for new targets th ...

  10. Temperature-Tolerant COLD-PCR enables mutation-enriched targeted re-sequencing

    SBC: TRANSGENOMIC, INC.            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Cancers develop from the life-long accumulation of critical somatic mutations due to DNA-damaging agents that lead to cells transforming into tumor-forming cells. These low-level tumor-associated somatic DNA mutations can have profound implications for development of metastasis, prognosis, choice of treatment, follow-up or early cancer detection. Unless they ar ...
