  2. Researching economic feasibility of the mixed-cell raceway, providing a way for small farms to enter the aquaculture industry.

    SBC: RIPPLE ROCK FISH FARMS, LLC            Topic: 812

    With the growing demand for locally grown seafood in the United States, small farmers need an economically feasible solution to enter the aquaculture market. Consumers are seeking healthy fish, produced using sustainable methods. Currently, small farmers struggle, financially, to build viable indoor systems which can meet the needs of the local market. The goal of this project is to provide incent ...

  3. Superior Nutrient Availability, Reduced Metabolic Waste and Increased Energy Efficiency in Aquafeeds


    In November 2011 the worlds human population reached 7 billion. Concurrent role shifts in world economies (e.g., competition for seafood products with China) make it necessary for aquaculture to grow at a pace much faster than previously estimated. In addition, the American seafood trade deficit now exceeds $10 billion per year. Clearly, we are at a point when new technologies are desperately need ...

  4. Development of Noninvasive System for Detection of Sleep Apnea in Animals


    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The long term goal of this project is to develop and commercialize noninvasive equipment, called the sleep and respiratory track (SARTrak) system, for high throughput detection of sleep apnea in animals. The specific goal for the Phase I application is to design and evaluate a basic model of the SARTrak system with eight chambers (one chamber per animal), i.e. ...

  5. Intelligent and Automatic Image Segmentation Software for High ThroughputAnalysi

    SBC: CytoInformatics LLC            Topic: NIAMS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): It is well established that aging and many chronic diseases, such as cancer and heart failure, are associated with significant losses in skeletal muscle mass and strength in humans. There is agreement across the musclebiology community that important morphological characteristics of muscle fibers, such as fiber area, the number and position of myonuclei, cellul ...

  7. A brief iPad-based screening measure for HIV-associated neurocognitive disorders

    SBC: Digital Artefacts LLC            Topic: NIMH

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): HIV-associated neurocognitive disorders (HAND) remain prevalent despite effective anti-retroviral treatments. Cognitive impairments in the current treatment era are often mild and not readily detectable because currentscreening measures (e.g., the HIV Dementia Scale) lack sensitivity to detect subtle impairments in cognitive function. Although more sensitive t ...

  8. Neuroinformatics for Prospective Data Management and Sharing


    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): There is a tremendous need for tools that allow NIH sponsored investigators to easily share and disseminate data from brain imaging studies. Access to large neuroimaging data sets is a critical aspect of learning abouthow the brain works both in health and disease. Most typically, large data sets are collected by one investigator, used for a specific purpose, a ...

  9. Naloxone Nasal Spray Development

    SBC: ANTIOP, INC.            Topic: NIDA

    DESCRIPTION: The following proposal is a follow-on Phase 2 b application from our initial proposal (1-R42 DA 030001). U.S. drug overdose deaths, mostly commonly from opioids, now exceed deaths from automobile accidents. There is a significant unmet medical need to provide additional pharmacologic options for treatment of opioid overdose. Emergency medical service personnel would prefer a non- inj ...

  10. Internet-Based Distributed Quantitative 4D Analysis of Aortic MR/MDCT Images


    Aortic aneurysms and dissections are a cause of frequently preventable death for over 13,000 people annually in the US alone. Many more patients live under a constant threat of a catastrophic aortic event from atheroscle- rotic or congenital causes. Therefore, early and comprehensive diagnosis of morphological or dynamic changes in the aorta is of great importance. This STTR proposal extends and t ...
