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. A Novel Cost Effective Method for Growing High Performance Radiation Sensors

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: DTRA082007

    Certain lanthanide halides have significantly higher light output than NaI:Tl, the comparison standard for scintillators, plus other important properties, including fast decay times and excellent proportionality. Unfortunately, lanthanide halides grown by traditional melt processes have high production costs and limited availability. Crystals are usually limited to about 5 cm x 5 cm, right cylinde ...

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: NCI

    Mutation of genetic DNA is a major factor causing cancer. Locating these changes in the DNA sequence of single molecules is difficult because they cannot be assayed by conventional sequencing techniques. This project will demonstrate sequencing capabilities for single stranded DNA and RNA immobilized on a novel substrate, and demonstrate a novel method for increasing throughput. Sensitivity to mid ...

  3. Improved Continuous Autologus Blood Reinfusion Device Using an Ultrasonic System

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: NHLBI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Surgeons face several challenges associated with intra- and post-operative blood loss. A limited supply of blood available for transfusion and injurious results involving transfusion reactions and disease transmission using allogenic blood, make blood component separation, embolus removal, and reinfusion of the patient's own shed blood an attractive option. In ...

  4. Low Cost Photon Counting Detector for Synchrotron Applications

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: NCRR

    Recognizing the ability of synchrotron sources to deliver increasingly higher photon fluxes and the correspondingly rising, demanding needs of time-resolved applications, along with the limitations of current imaging modalities, the need for the development of an innovative detector technology for photon counting in X-ray imaging has become apparent to researchers and equipment manufacturers alike ...

  5. Proteome Bead-Display for Discovery of Tumor Antigens

    SBC: AMBERGEN, INC            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): A promising area of cancer research is the discovery of cancer specific tumor-associated antigens (TAA). Screening the sera of patients having particular cancers against proteomic libraries, to detect autoantibody binding, can lead to the discovery of panels of TAA which can be used for early diagnosis, guiding therapy and developing anticancer vaccines. Howeve ...

  6. Expression-Based Multi-Gene Signatures for CRC Recurrence and Chemoselection

    SBC: AMBERGEN, INC            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in the U.S and Western world. Despite increased screening and advances in treatment, the mortality rate (~50,000/year) and high national health-care burden for CRC is likely to remain high unless more effective methods are developed to predict recurrence and response to chemo-radiation ther ...

  8. Use of X-ray Backscatter Imaging to Screen General Aviation Aircraft

    SBC: American Science and Engineering, Inc.            Topic: HSB092001

    In this Phase II effort, American Science & Engineering, Inc. (AS&E) will design, fabricate, test and deliver a mobile X-ray Backscatter one-sided imaging system suitable for examining general aviation aircraft for the presence of weapons, contraband or other proscribed items. The system employs a high resolution X-ray Backscatter imaging module mounted on an omni-directional host platform ...

  9. High-Bandwidth Photon-Counting Detectors with Enhanced Near-Infrared Response

    SBC: aPeak Inc.            Topic: O106

    Long-range optical telecommunications (LROT) impose challenging requirements on detector array sensitivity at 1064nm and arrays timing bandwidth. Large photonic arrays with integrated beam acquisition, tracking and/or communication capabilities, and smart pixel architecture should allow the implementation of more reliable and robust LROT systems. Integration of smart pixel technology for parallel ...

  10. Alzheimer's Disease Therapeutic

    SBC: APHIOS CORPORATION            Topic: NIA

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Alzheimer's Disease (AD) is a significant neurological disorder that afflicts more than 4.5 million Americans and more than 10 million people worldwide. The lack of a cure for AD will result in a demand for better and safer AD drugs. All of the drugs on the market today have serious side effects. Recently, researchers at The Blanchette Rockefeller Neurosciences ...
