  1. STTR Phase I: Fungal Expression of Antimicrobial Peptides for Addition to Animal Feed

    SBC: Mycoinnovation            Topic: EB

    This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project will develop antimicrobial peptides (AMP) as an alternative to antibiotics that are used as growth promotants in animal feed. It is common practice to add low doses of medically important antibiotics to animal feed to improve production efficiency. However, this practice has been shown to lead to antibiotic-resistant bacterial strains, ...

  2. STTR Phase I: High yield production of boron nitride nanotubes for advanced heat management in sustainable technologies

    SBC: Nano Innovations, LLC            Topic: AS

    This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project focuses on the growth of high quality Boron Nitride Nanotubes (BNNTs). BNNTs have both high thermal conductance that is an order of magnitude higher than aluminum, and also have an electronic bandgap of about 6 eV that makes them an excellent electrical insulator. These unique properties promise many exciting applications. Unfortunatel ...
