  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. Scaffolding for Math Games

    SBC: Virtual Learning Technologies (Sokikom)            Topic: N/A

    In 2009, Virtual Learning Technologies received an award to develop Frachine, a web-based single player fraction learning game for elementary school students. This project will develop an intelligent tutoring system that will integrate with the existing game to provide the individualized instructional support required to further improve student math outcomes.  Phase I will develop a prototype ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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- ...

  6. Nucleic acid delivery of growth factors and heparan sulfate proteoglycans for enh

    SBC: International Medicine and Biomedical Research            Topic: NIAMS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): In chronic wounds, numerous factors contribute to the diminished healing. Wound healing constituents, including heparan sulfate proteoglycans and numerous growth factors, are essential to normal skin wound healing. Several key growth factors such as FGF, VEGF, and PDGF require heparan sulfate-like polymers as co- receptors or co-activators for growth factor act ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. A Novel Expansion of Primary Leukemia Stem Cells

    SBC: Arteriocyte, Inc.            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Arteriocyte's long-term objective is to develop a platform for ex vivo expansion of leukemic stem cell (LSC) based on cytokine-enriched medium and the company's proprietary nanofiber culture scaffold (NANEX). Cancer stem cell research is of significant importance because, this approach has the potential to create an effective therapy that overcomes challenges o ...

  9. Halogenated Insulin: a fast-acting, ultra stable analog.

    SBC: THERMALIN DIABETES, INC.            Topic: NIDDK

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): A Phase 1 SBIR program of pre-clinical development is proposed focusing on a novel rapid-acting insulin analog for the treatment of diabetes mellitus. Designated Insulin-Cl, our product is a derivative of insulin lispro (the active component of HumalogTM) containing a single chloro-substitution within the aromatic ring of a conserved phenylalanine in the B-chai ...

  10. A Novel 'Zinc-Stapled' Long-Acting Insulin Analog

    SBC: THERMALIN DIABETES, INC.            Topic: NIDDK

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): A Phase 1 SBIR program of pre-clinical development is proposed focusing on a novel long-acting insulin analog for the basal treatment of diabetes mellitus. Designated Insulin-ZN, our product is a derivative of human insulin containing novel zinc-binding sites at the periphery of the insulin hexamer. The non-classical zinc-binding sites are mediated by paired (i ...
