  4. A Systems Biology Approach to Enable Safe Administration of Mefloquine

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: A06T034

    Mefloquine is known to cause adverse neurological effects, possibly attributable to single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs). Our objective is to develop a genetic screen capable of determining the susceptibility of an individual to Mefloquine neurotoxicity. In Phase I, transcriptional profiling of primary neurons exposed to Mefloquine was used to construct an intracellular pathway model to explain ...

  8. High-Fidelity Modeling Tools for Bone Conduction Communication Systems

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: A06T033

    Warfighters increasingly rely on radio communication equipment to ensure safety, mission effectiveness, and situational awareness. Current military communication gear involves headphones and acoustic microphones. Unfortunately, headphones cover the ears and deteriorate detection and localization of ambient sounds that may be important for tactical situations. An alternative to air conduction is bo ...
