  1. Creating Resilient Structures with Polymer Coatings

    SBC: Optechnology, Inc.            Topic: 819S

      The first goal of our team is to design and develop highly ductile cement mortar composites using novel patent applied for technology which has been shown to produce materials with high energy absorption, decreased modulus, higher tensile strength, and greater toughness than standard or ultra high performance concretes or fibercements. These materials will be used to produce NEMA Class ...

  2. Natural Adjuvants to enhance Efficacy of Viral Vaccines for Mariculture

    SBC: ProFishent Inc            Topic: 812

    Viral diseases are a major impediment to the development and expansion of environmentally safe and sustainable aquaculture systems (NMFS 2007). Despite control measures, pathogenic viruses kill millions of fish and shellfish every year (ICES Mariculture Committee 2004). To date, vaccines against fish viruses have generally provided extremely poor protection or are too expensive (e.g. DNA ...

  3. Development of an Extended Range, high Precision 3-D Acoustic Tag Underwater Positioning System for Monitoring Animals in the Marine Environment

    SBC: Hydroacoustic Technology, Inc.            Topic: 816

    Ecosystem-based marine research would benefit from an improved ability to investigate the ecology of marine animal populations on both large and small spatial scales. Acoustic tag monitoring systems are a preferred technology for monitoring animal movement and behavior in the marine environment. However, the marine acoustic tagging systems currently available generally lack precise posit ...

  4. Innovative Track Gage Measurement System

    SBC: Quest Integrated, LLC            Topic: 101FR6

      This proposal presents two innovative non-contact track gage measurement techniques, microwave and ultrasound.  Both methods will be investigated and tested under harsh experimental setup conditions simulating outdoor train track.  Based on the initial test results, the more promising of the proposed two techniques will be further developed into a system with optimized measurement ...

  5. New Electro-Hydraulic Foot Prosthesis

    SBC: MOTION CONTROL, INC            Topic: 84133S2

    This project develops an electronic-controlled version of the advanced hydraulic foot/ankle (MCI Foot) demonstrating the feasibility of the automatic adjustment of resistance throughout the range of motion. The advanced MCI Foot, especially the automatic-controlled version, contributes to the function of the prosthesis wearer, resulting in advanced and more natural walking benefits. The project ob ...

  6. Demand Driven Healthcare Scheduling using Flexible Shifts and Monte-Carlo Simulat

    SBC: ACME EXPRESS, INC.            Topic: NINR

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The shortage of nurses and medical technologists is accelerating. Shortages can be reduced by scheduling staff to precisely meet the hour-by-hour demand for medical service. Think of bank teller scheduling, where more staff are scheduled at peak demand. Current attempts to schedule to demand are relatively primitive: a small number of quantized fixed shifts, fo ...

  7. Refinement of lead compounds to modulate water permeability through AQP4

    SBC: AEROMICS, Inc.            Topic: NINDS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Cerebral edema (and its counterpart in the spinal cord) is a major contributor to the damage caused by stroke, traumatic brain injury, traumatic spinal-cord injury, and bacterial meningitis. Stroke alone is the third leading cause of death in the USA and the leading cause of disability. Unfortunately, few treatment options are available for cerebral and spinal- ...

  8. Nucleic acid delivery of growth factors and heparan sulfate proteoglycans for enh

    SBC: International Medicine and Biomedical Research            Topic: NIAMS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): In chronic wounds, numerous factors contribute to the diminished healing. Wound healing constituents, including heparan sulfate proteoglycans and numerous growth factors, are essential to normal skin wound healing. Several key growth factors such as FGF, VEGF, and PDGF require heparan sulfate-like polymers as co- receptors or co-activators for growth factor act ...

  9. A novel DC-targeting non-integrating lentivector vaccine for HIV infection

    SBC: TRIA BIOSCIENCE CORP.            Topic: NIAID

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Despite two decades of persistent research on prophylactic and therapeutic immunization against HIV, an effective vaccine-based solution to the HIV pandemic has remained elusive. However, the last few years have provided important insights into the type of immune response that would be required for an effective HIV vaccine. For instance, in studies of natural H ...

  10. Therapeutic Potential of Ex vivo expanded Human Cord Blood derived CD133+ cells i

    SBC: Arteriocyte, Inc.            Topic: NHLBI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Critical Limb Ischemia (CLI) is a common problem that often results in major limb amputation. Circulating endothelial progenitor cells likely play a role in the pathogenesis of CLI; the number and function of these cells that are mobilized from the bone marrow are reduced in the elderly and diabetics, groups at high risk for CLI. Allogenic Umbilical Cord Blood ...
