  2. STTR Phase I: A novel wound dressing for infection control and tissue regeneration

    SBC: HISTOGEN INC.            Topic: BM

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project is to overcome limitations that prevent effective treatment of major wound infections. The U.S. spends over $50 billion per year on wound care; thus there is a large potential market for this product. Current wound care products have a high risk of rejection, scarring, and antibiotic resistanc ...

  4. STTR Phase I: SMART Colorimetric Sensor for Airborne Methane Detection

    SBC: Calyx, Inc.            Topic: MI

    This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase I project will develop phage-based colorimetric sensors to provide cost-effective, low-powered detection and quantification of natural gas. Currently, there is no technology that can reliably detect early natural gas leaks on-site in real-time; existing solutions are either not sensitive enough (handheld infra-red detector) or too bulky (gas chromatogr ...

  8. STTR Phase I: Development of a Wearable Long-term Monitor for Cardiac Arrhythmia

    SBC: Cardiac Motion, LLC            Topic: BM

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project is far-reaching. A preliminary market study indicates that 1.5% to 2.5% of the developed world?s population suffers from heart arrhythmias while the WHO reports ~0.5% of the global population. For Atrial fibrillation, in the USA alone this disease will afflict ~7.7 million people by 2015, affl ...

  9. STTR Phase I: New dwarfing genes to improve yield and abiotic stress tolerance in wheat

    SBC: Gene shifters, LLC            Topic: BT

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) project is the improvement of wheat yields by introducing newly identified dwarfing genes. The currently used dwarfing genes, which were instrumental in bringing about the "green revolution", are at least partly responsible for this bottleneck. These dwarfing genes, present in more than 90% of the wheat varie ...
