The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.


    SBC: 3F, LLC            Topic: AM

    This Small Business Technology Transfer Research (STTR) Phase II project has the overall objective of developing a multi-component melt spinning approach to produce a new family of high performance fibers using standard low-cost polymers. The new high-strength and/or high-modulus polymeric fiber is to be made using cutting-edge but commercially available spinning technology and an innovative and ...

  2. Low-cost and Rapid DNA Sequence for Biometric Applications

    SBC: ADVANCED LIQUID LOGIC            Topic: HSB091001

    Advanced Liquid Logic proposes to develop a low-cost and rapid biometric system based on DNA. Using a miniaturized DNA sequencing format the device will enable DNA-based identification of individuals as well as determination of family relationships (kinship) between individuals. The system will be implemented using Advanced Liquid Logic`s proprietary Digital Microfluidics technology, which is base ...

  3. Nanodroplet PCR Lab-Chip for Clinical Pathogen Detection


    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): It is estimated that 2 million health-care associated infections are acquired each year by hospitalized patients resulting in 90,000 deaths and about 4.5 billion in excess health care costs. A large and growing percentage of these infections can be attributed to Staphylococcus aureus and, in particular, to methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA). Rapid PCR-base ...

  5. 3WEAVE Fabric/Composite Panels for Blast Protection

    SBC: 3TEX, Inc.            Topic: HSB082001

      Based on the results of the Phase I project, it was shown that 3TEX`s unitary 3D woven E-Glass billet reinforced composite panels have excellent potential to be used as blast mitigating material for protecting buildings. Fibers and resins used in the Phase I were selected with affordability and fire resistance as the major considerations. In the Phase II effort proposed, the same fiber and ...

  6. Multifunctional Prepregs and Laminated Composites Made by Shear Pressing Carbon Nanotube Arrays

    SBC: 3TEX, Inc.            Topic: AF09BT36

    A novel method of fabricating carbon nanotube (CNT) reinforced polymer matrix composites is proposed. It includes growing super-aligned carbon nanotube arrays on a flat substrate, using NCSU proprietary shear pressing method to compress the grown arrays into a layer of densely packed, highly aligned CNTs inclined at an angle of several degrees to the substrate, separating the produced CNT sheet fr ...

  7. Improved Joints Based on 3D Fiber Architecture Preforms

    SBC: 3TEX, Inc.            Topic: 20a

    Wind blades are complex constructions of composite materials. As with all composite structures, forming joints between the various elements has long been problematic, since composites cannot easily be bolted, fastened, or welded together. Current manufacturing methods result in thick adhesive layers that have varying dimensions and which are the most common failure area in wind blades during opera ...

  8. Localized Growth Factor Therapy for Surgical Hernia Repair

    SBC: AFFINERGY, LLC            Topic: NIGMS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Over 700,000 surgical hernia repairs are performed each year in the United States and despite recent advances, a significant rate of recurrence persists. The incorporation of biocompatible mesh to strengthen the abdominal fascia has largely replaced high-tension suturing techniques in hernia repair. Currently, the preferred biomaterials include durable syntheti ...

  9. Development of an adipose-derived stem cell isolation matrix

    SBC: AFFINERGY, LLC            Topic: NIGMS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are an adult stem cell population, typically isolated from bone marrow aspirates, and are capable of self-renewal, expansion in culture, and differentiation into adipocytes, chondrocytes, and osteoblasts. These cells are being explored for use in tissue engineering applications, such as spinal fusions, bone defect repairs, and cart ...

  10. Recombinant expression of a biomaterial-targeting BMP-2 containing a peptide tag

    SBC: AFFINERGY, LLC            Topic: NIGMS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The emergence of biological therapeutics, including cells, peptides, and proteins, has allowed medical science to address a number of unmet clinical needs. Often these agents are extremely potent, specifically activating endogenous signaling cascades to promote well-characterized biochemical and physiological responses. For example, bone morphogenetic protein-2 ...
