  1. Exploiting the Mating Phenotype of Chlamydomonas reinhardtii to Enhance Harvesting in Large-Scale Oil Production from Algae

    SBC: KENT SEATECH CORPORATION            Topic: A10

    This STTR Phase I project proposes to develop and establish a novel clumping (flocculation) strain of algal using an engineered extracellar protein that can be induced. The overarching goal is to provide the industry with a novel, energy efficient, and cost effective tool to dewater microalgae. What are the broader/commercial impacts of the proposed project? The broader/commercial impact of the p ...

  3. Multi-Functional Nanotube-Based Sensor Array for Detecting Blood Coagulation Defects

    SBC: Innosense Llc            Topic: DHA19A001

    Defense Health Agency (DHA) is seeking a multi-functional diagnostic to determine blood coagulopathy in real time at point-of-care (POC). Blood coagulopathy, resulting in uncontrolled bleeding, is implicated in 80% of operating room deaths and 50% of trauma deaths. There are many types of coagulation defects, which need distinct interventions. Therefore, DHA wants prompt monitoring of the underlyi ...

  6. STTR Phase I: Bistable Electroactive Polymers for Refreshable Braille Displays

    SBC: Polyradiant            Topic: MM

    This Small Business Technology Transfer Program Phase I project aims to develop a refreshable Braille display for the blind. Existing Braille technologies require complicated mechanical designs that are bulky and too expensive for personal use. A new technology based on a new smart material (bistable electroactive polymer) will be developed to enable a Braille dot array on a thin flat panel. The ...
