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. Soil Core Analysis Network for In-Field Measurements of Nitrogen and Other Soil Properties

    SBC: VERIS TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: N/A

    Fertilizer application rates that do not match crop usage pose an economic loss for farmers, and excess applications can result in environmental degradation of water and atmosphere. A significant portion of the nitrogen applied to U.S. fields is not needed, due to the availability of nitrogen from the soil. Soil nutrients, especially nitrogen, vary spatially and temporally, within the field and so ...

  2. A Closed-Path Methane and Water Vapor Gas Analyzer

    SBC: LI-COR BIOSCIENCES, INC.            Topic: 16b

    A closed-path, methane and water vapor gas analyzer is required to support the widespread deployment that is needed to achieve a better understanding of the global methane budget and to quantify exchanges between the atmosphere and terrestrial biosphere. The analyzer must be robust, portable, consistent with solar powered applications, and suitable for long-term and remote field measurements. In a ...

  3. Ultra-low-power analog seizure detection algorithm

    SBC: FLINT HILLS SCIENTIFIC, LLC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Development of implantable devices for automated detection, quantification, warning and delivery of therapy to block seizures is a very important unmet medical need. Making such a device as small as possible, minimizin g replacement surgeries, and maximizing device longevity and/or time between battery recharging are some of the most important development driv ...

  4. Nanoparticles and Nanocapsules for Glioma Targeting

    SBC: LNKCHEMSOLUTIONS            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): LNK Chemsolutions LLC collaborates with researchers from the University of Chicago to develop nanocapsule technology for enhanced delivery to gliomas. Preliminary results are particularly encouraging in that the nanocap sules display very good transport in healthy rat brains, and they can easily be designed for targeted delivery and timed payload release. In vi ...

  5. From Nanoparticles to Novel Protective Garments

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

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The goal of this project is to develop breathable, lightweight and disposable chemical protective clothing for use by personnel associated with law enforcement agencies, emergency medical services, medical/triage facili ties, and other federal, state, or local emergency agencies as well as by fire fighters and civilian first responders. This goal will be accomp ...

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

    Early diagnosis and early treatment of cancer greatly improve the likelihood of long-term survival and health. Chemical structures that are selectively taken by cancerous tissue can be used to pull diagnostic and therapeutic moieties to cancerous tissue. Appropriately sized iron and/or iron oxide nanoparticles are effective for both diagnosis (via magnetic resonance imaging, MRI) and therapy (by h ...

  7. Anabolic Therapeutics for Increasing Bone Denisty and Quality

    SBC: OsteoGeneX Inc            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): OsteoGeneX is developing a therapeutic directed against the new bone target Sclerostin (SOST) for the treatment of osteoporosis and related bone disorders. Through genomic approaches Sclerostin was identified as a mast er regulator of bone mass affecting men and women. Using proteomic approaches Dr. Ellies and Krumlauf discovered and patented Sclerostin's mech ...

  8. In-Vivo, Wireless Fast-Scan Cyclic Voltammetry System

    SBC: Pinnacle Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Pinnacle Technology and Professors George Wilson and Michael Johnson of the University of Kansas, have developed, and successfully tested, a prototype device that can collect, analyze and transmit fast-scan cyclic volt ammetry (FSCV) data wirelessly in freely moving rats. The prototype FSCV system is compatible with microelectrodes (lt10 5m diameter). The syst ...

  9. PERV Free Swine for Xenotransplantation

    SBC: XIMEREX, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): There is a huge disparity between the number of patients who need a transplant and the available organ donors. Pigs could readily resolve the unmet need. The physiology of many tissues is close to that of humans. They c an be raised in clean controlled conditions. One potential drawback, however, is a virus defined in the porcine genome, PERV. In tissue co-cult ...

  10. Ex Vivo Induction of Tolerance for Autoimmune Diabetes

    SBC: XIMEREX, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Transplantation of human has proved to be most beneficial for patients with end stage organ failure or loss of critical cells. For example, the transplantation of islets from human cadaveric donors has reversed type 1 diabetes for many recipients, making them insulin independent. Unfortunately, there are not nearly enough human organ donors to satisfy the nee ...
