  4. DRα MOG A Novel Immunomodulatory Therapeutic for Stroke

    SBC: Virogenomics BioDevelopment Inc            Topic: 105

    This is a Phase I STTR to investigate the preclinical efficacy of a novel immunomodulator DR MOG in a clinically relevant thromboembolic stroke model in mice We have previously shown that T cells are activated after stroke infiltrate brain and exacerbate ischemic brain damage Strategies that reduce T cell activation and brain tissue infiltration have been investigated as potential therapeu ...

  5. Tracking and Assessing Learner Engagement Toolkit (TALENT)

    SBC: Eduworks Corporation            Topic: AF17AT009

    The U.S. Air Force trains and educates a large and diverse workforce to meet requirements across a complex array of missions. Early-stage training in many Air Force Specialty Codes can consist of large corpora of foundational, static material, so training that motivates airmen is a necessary element in helping ensure a supply of qualified personnel in mission-critical areas like aerospace maintena ...

  6. Additive Manufacturing Plastic Materials with Improved Dielectric Breakdown Strength

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: AF15AT07

    In this Phase II program, Voxtel will design, manufacture, and benchmark-test additive-manufactured (AM) insulators capable of electrical stress greater than 25 kV/mm, for use in high-electric-field applications, such as high-power microwave (HPM) devices. These insulators will sustain vacuum of 10-7 Torr and withstand 20 psi of pressure. To achieve this goal, Voxtel will synthesize readily additi ...

  8. Bayesian Inference of Spacecraft Geometry and Pose

    SBC: VISION SYSTEMS INC.            Topic: AF17AT007

    Space platforms are complex dynamical systems and there are many reasons to model them from ground telescope imagery as well as from space-based sensor platforms. One key motivation is to determine the operational state and configuration of the vehicle. Key questions such as did the solar panels fail to deploy, did the object begin to tumble unexpectedly may be addressed by a sufficiently detaile ...

  9. CMV Vectored Herpes Simplex Vaccine

    SBC: TOMEGAVAX, INC.            Topic: NIAID

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The longterm goal of this project is to utilize cytomegalovirus (CMV) vectors in the development of a therapeutic vaccine against herpes simplex virus 2 (HSV-2), the causative agent of genital herpes. HSV-2 is widely prevalent in the population causing recurrent genital lesions and significantly increasing the risk for other sexually transmitted diseases such a ...

  10. Developing a Novel eHealth Application for Oral Systemic Issues during Pregnancy

    SBC: InterVision Media            Topic: NIDCR

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Oral disease is a silent epidemic because of its prevalence and missed prevention opportunities. Evidence has established connections between oral-systemic etiologies, including the effects of periodontal disease (PD), and a range of health outcomes and co-morbidities across the lifecourse (e.g., adverse pregnancy and birth outcomes; early childhood carries; ...
