  2. Scaled Melanin Production to Enable Advanced Materials

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: A19BT010

    Melanin is a largely unexplored biomolecule with a large diversity of molecular composition. It has broad electromagnetic absorbance, is capable of absorbing gamma radiation, is a strong antioxidant, and is resistant to environmental degradation. Despite many intriguing qualities, it has never been produced at industrial scales to enable innovations in materials and coatings. In response to the de ...

  5. Microfluidic Platform for Detection and Quantification of DNA Methylation

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: A19BT013

    Epigenetic changes in DNA methylation pattern can result due to aging, diseases, or environmental changes and have been identified as biomarkers for several neuropsychiatric and neurodegenerative disorders, cancer, traumatic brain injury (TBI) and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). As a result, DNA methylation signatures are being explored to assist with disease diagnosis, monitoring disease p ...
