  1. Creating Resilient Structures with Polymer Coatings

    SBC: Optechnology, Inc.            Topic: 819S

      The first goal of our team is to design and develop highly ductile cement mortar composites using novel patent applied for technology which has been shown to produce materials with high energy absorption, decreased modulus, higher tensile strength, and greater toughness than standard or ultra high performance concretes or fibercements. These materials will be used to produce NEMA Class ...

  2. Next Generation Energy Efficient Supplemental Lighting for Plant Production

    SBC: CYCLOPTICS TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: 813

    Greenhouse farming is an absolute necessity to revive and create local agriculture industries in northern climatically challenged regions with short growing seasons. Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) has made significant strides in greenhouse farming technology. State of the art CEA farming utilizes direct control of lighting, temperature and CO2 in a hydroponics environment. Key advantages ...

  3. Demand Driven Healthcare Scheduling using Flexible Shifts and Monte-Carlo Simulat

    SBC: ACME EXPRESS, INC.            Topic: NINR

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The shortage of nurses and medical technologists is accelerating. Shortages can be reduced by scheduling staff to precisely meet the hour-by-hour demand for medical service. Think of bank teller scheduling, where more staff are scheduled at peak demand. Current attempts to schedule to demand are relatively primitive: a small number of quantized fixed shifts, fo ...

  4. Refinement of lead compounds to modulate water permeability through AQP4

    SBC: AEROMICS, Inc.            Topic: NINDS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Cerebral edema (and its counterpart in the spinal cord) is a major contributor to the damage caused by stroke, traumatic brain injury, traumatic spinal-cord injury, and bacterial meningitis. Stroke alone is the third leading cause of death in the USA and the leading cause of disability. Unfortunately, few treatment options are available for cerebral and spinal- ...

  5. Therapeutic Potential of Ex vivo expanded Human Cord Blood derived CD133+ cells i

    SBC: Arteriocyte, Inc.            Topic: NHLBI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Critical Limb Ischemia (CLI) is a common problem that often results in major limb amputation. Circulating endothelial progenitor cells likely play a role in the pathogenesis of CLI; the number and function of these cells that are mobilized from the bone marrow are reduced in the elderly and diabetics, groups at high risk for CLI. Allogenic Umbilical Cord Blood ...

  6. Positive Airway Pressure Gas Modulator- A Novel Method to Treat Central Sleep Ap


    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Sleep apnea is a major public health problem but traditional treatments have focused mostly on resolving obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) as demonstrated by the plethora of obstruction-motivated therapies like positive airway pressure, oral appliances, and others. However, more troubling forms of sleep apnea exist like those that are mediated by chemoreflex instab ...

  7. Fluorescence Anisotropy-based Macromolecule Crystallization Screening

    SBC: IXPRESSGENES, INC.            Topic: NIGMS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Current practice is to set up trial crystallization screens and periodically review the results to see if a crystal or promising crystal-like precipitate has appeared a process that often takes weeks or months. Most outcomes are precipitated protein or clear drops, and the conditions that led to those results are removed from further consideration. We are deve ...

  8. Ambulatory System for Hydrocephalus Shunt Monitoring

    SBC: H-CUBED            Topic: NINDS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Each year, there are over 10,000 newborns diagnosed with hydrocephalus in the United States. Hydrocephalus, an excessive accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) within the head, is a lifelong disease with no known cure. Fortunately, hydrocephalus can be managed with CSF shunts which redirect excessive CSF elsewhere in the body. Unfortunately, 30-40% o ...

  10. Miniature Stimulator for Temporary Therapies

    SBC: NDI MEDICAL, LLC            Topic: NICHD

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Shoulder pain is a common complication following stroke, affecting almost one third of stroke survivors. Of the multitude of treatment options, only surface electrical stimulation has evidence of efficacy from multiple randomized controlled trials. However, clinical and technical difficulties associated with surface stimulation, such as discomfort caused by sti ...
