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. Microstructured Semiconductor Neutron Detector Arrays for Neutron Scattering Measurements

    SBC: Radiation Detection Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 09a

    The objective of this project is to design and build a high-efficiency neutron detector array consisting of 3000 pixels, with each pixel being 100 microns wide and 4 cm tall, all based on the microstructured semiconductor neutron detector (MSND) technology. The MSND technology resulted in over 40 publications, three allowed patents, one patent pending, and recently received an R & amp;D 100 aw ...

  4. Oral delivered bone building therapy for osteoporosis

    SBC: OsteoGeneX Inc            Topic: NIAMS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The osteoporosis market is still in demand for new therapeutics due to the lack of safe orally available bone building drugs. Currently, parathyroid hormone (PTH; FORTEOTM) and its analogs are the only bone building therapies available yet they capture only 8% of the osteoporosis market due to significant dosing and safety limitations. OsteoGeneX is developing ...

  6. Group housing: A robotic system to track and interact with individuals

    SBC: Pinnacle Technology, Inc.            Topic: NIMH

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Individually housing animals, even for a short period, is known to have a negative influence on behavior, learning ability, and physiology. Group-housed rodents are better able to cope with stress through improved behavioral and physiological responses. Unfortunately, many experiments, including those designed to measure behavior, circadian activity, and/or sle ...

  10. A Nicotine Biosensor for Addiction Studies

    SBC: Pinnacle Technology, Inc.            Topic: NIDA

    ABSTRACT Tobacco-related deaths cost the United States approximately 200 billion each year. Nicotine is singularly responsible for the dependence-forming properties of tobacco smoking and, once introduced to the body, affects the brain within 15 seconds.Breaking nicotine addiction is challenging and relapse rates remain high. The extremely rapid timescale of nicotine action renders existing techn ...
