The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Children's Nutrition and Exercise, Healthy Lifestyles Video Game


    "This project addresses the USDA request for innovative application of information technology to convey important nutritional information and awareness of health issues and provide community based interventions to advance healthy lifestyles at work, at school, at home, and at play or leisure. We will create a real video game that 1) will increase children's awareness of the relationship of healthy ...

  2. Coupling State-of-the-Science Subsurface Simulation with Advanced User Interface and Parallel Visualization

    SBC: Thunderhead Engineering Consultants, Inc.            Topic: 35

    To address the U.S. Department of Energy¿s (DOE) long-term cleanup and management responsibility for Cold-War-era production facilities, and to support DOE¿s efforts for monitoring the behavior of contaminants around existing and future waste disposal and storage areas, a leadership-class subsurface flow and transport computer simulator is needed. The simulator should exhibit: (1) the vers ...

  4. Metal Enhancement for Near-IR Fluorescence Based Membrane Assays

    SBC: LI-COR BIOSCIENCES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Fluorescent molecules that are positioned in close proximity to silver nanoparticles produce increased fluorescence intensity along with increased photostability and decreased lifetimes. These silver structures have been studied in great detail for their ability to increase fluorescent intensities when deposited onto solid surfaces, such as glass or quartz. Lit ...

  5. eukaryotic expression vectors resistant to transgene silencing


    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Eukaryotic expression vectors are utilized for various biomedical applications including protein production, gene therapy and gene vaccination. A key barrier is that expression vectors undergo promoter inactivation (silencing) over time. This lack of sustained transgene expression negatively impacts the cost of cell culture production of recombinant proteins, a ...

  6. Rapid deployment DNA vaccine for pandemic influenza


    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): DNA-only vaccination would significantly enhance the rapid deployment utility of DNA vaccines for pandemic application (development times for DNA vaccines are significantly shorter than those for protein or viral vector systems). The overall goal of this project is to develop a rapid deployment DNA vaccine platform protective against pandemic influenza H5N1. Th ...

  8. Treatment for Canine Diabetic Cataracts

    SBC: Therapeutic Vision, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): In the 62 million companion dog population in the United States, there has been a three-fold increase in diabetes mellitus (DM) over the last 30 years. In dogs, DM is characterized by the rapid onset of bilateral sugar cataracts which often result in vision loss. Today, nearly one in three 3 dogs with cataracts is diabetic. Sugar cataracts cannot be currently p ...

  9. Advanced high-efficiency semiconductor neutron detectors of annular ring design

    SBC: Mocha Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal is for the design and development of advanced high-efficiency semiconductor thermal neutron detectors in both silicon and silicon carbide. These detectors will provide detectors with neutron conversion efficiency exceeding 40%, depending on detector configuration. The use of annular ring design features eliminates neutron streaming and other undesirable effects of previous perforated ...

  10. Nanocrystalline Materials for Removal of Reduced Sulfur and Nitrogen Compounds from Fuel Gas

    SBC: NanoScale Materials, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Integrated gasification combined cycle, or IGCC, which uses a gasifier to convert coal to fuel gas, and then uses combined cycle power block to generate electricity, is one of the most promising technologies to meet the challenge of generating electricity from coal in an environmentally sustainable way. IGCC has many advantages over traditional technologies including higher efficiency, lower poll ...
