  4. SBIR Phase I: Development Of An Orally Administered Gene Delivery Platform For Induced Protein Secretion Via The Gastrointestinal Tract

    SBC: Dnalite Therapeutics, Inc.            Topic: BM

    This SBIR Phase I project will further the development of an orally administered gene delivery vehicle called the Crypt-Reaching Particle (CRP) that is able to overcome the physical barriers of the mucus to deliver DNA-based drugs to the cells of the gastrointestinal tract. The therapeutic agent will then be expressed as a protein locally in the gastrointestinal tract or be secreted into the blood ...

  5. STTR Phase I: Sustained Delivery of Peptides with Inverse Flash Nanoprecipitation

    SBC: Optimeos Life Sciences, Inc.            Topic: BM

    This STTR Phase I project aims to pioneer a novel approach for the sustained delivery of peptide therapeutics using nano-composite microparticles. Peptide therapeutics tend to suffer from rapid enzymatic degradation and clearance, with half-lives on the order of minutes, and require frequent injections. The goal of a sustained release formulation is to reduce the frequency of injections by slowly ...

  6. STTR Phase I: A Machine Learning Toolbox to Identify Therapeutics for Rare Genetic Disorders from Phenotypic Screens on Micropattern-Based Organoids

    SBC: Rumi Scientific, Inc.            Topic: BT

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project is to develop a widely applicable, innovative pipeline for drug discovery against rare genetic disorders. While each orphan disease affects a small fraction of individuals, thousands exist, affecting 400 million people world-wide. The challenge to bring therapies to the clinics for diseases th ...

  7. STTR Phase I: Development of a Transparent, Near-Ultraviolet Photovoltaic Power Source for Wireless Operation of Smart Windows and IoT Devices

    SBC: ANDLUCA TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: PH

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project is a transparent photovoltaic technology that converts near-ultraviolet (NUV) light into point-of-use power for dynamic 'smart' windows. Energy use in buildings represents roughly 40% of total U.S. energy demand. It is projected that over half the buildings that will be in use in 2050 are alre ...

  8. SBIR Phase II: Non-Invasive Retinal Oximetry for Detecting Diabetic Retinopathy prior to Structural Damage

    SBC: Bioxytech Retina            Topic: BM

    This SBIR Phase II project demonstrates and clinically validates a novel, non-invasive imaging technology to detect diabetic retinopathy before structural damage occurs. Diabetic retinopathy is among the leading causes of vision loss in the world. This devastating complication of both type I and II diabetes results in structural damage to the sensitive vasculature of the retina. Once structural da ...

  9. SBIR Phase II: A platform for identifying antibodies that modulate human membrane receptors involved in disease

    SBC: Abalone Bio, Inc.            Topic: BT

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project is to develop a drug discovery platform that will identify novel types of antibody therapeutics. The goal is to use antibodies to increase or decrease the activity of a type of cell signaling receptor called "G protein-coupled receptors" (GPCRs). There are more than 400 non-olfactory human GP ...

  10. SBIR Phase II: OCT-Compatible Imaging Adaptor for Precision Vascular Access via Hollow-Bore Needles

    SBC: WEST FACE MEDICAL DEVICES, INC.            Topic: BM

    This SBIR Phase II project supports development of a commercially viable real time optical imaging device to address the problem of failed first time vascular access. Peripheral IV access (PIV) is the most common invasive procedure for all ages, races and clinical settings. In the United States alone, there are an estimated 230 million PIVs placed per year. First time IV access has a shockingly hi ...
