Award List

  1. SBIR Phase II:Conversion of Biodiesel Glycerol to Xylitol Co-Product

    Amount: $499,996.00

    This SBIR Phase II project will develop a method to convert the byproduct glycerol to a value-added co-product, xylitol, thereby helping to reduce the costs associated with biodiesel production. The ...

    SBIR Phase II 2010 National Science Foundation
  2. Activated Sugars for Drug Discovery

    Amount: $100,231.00

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Natural product glycosylation is vital for the discovery of new pharmaceutical compounds. While it has been recognized for some time that many biologically active ...

    SBIR Phase I 2006 Department of Health and Human Services
  3. Production of L-Ribose and Rare Sugars

    Amount: $101,675.00

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Starting materials based on rare sugars that are used in the production of carbohydrate-based drugs are in low supply, therefore creating high prices. One such ...

    SBIR Phase I 2005 Department of Health and Human Services
  4. Production of L-Ribose and Rare Sugars

    Amount: $763,222.00

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Carbohydrates play an important role in many cellular functions and diseases; however, carbohydrate-based drug discovery research is lagging compared to other biol ...

    SBIR Phase II 2006 Department of Health and Human Services
  5. Synthesis and Testing of Neoglycoside Glycopeptide Prototypes

    Amount: $108,610.00

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This Phase I proposal is to develop glycopeptide neoglycosides against VanA-resistant and VanB-resistant organisms. The clinical relevance of such compounds stems ...

    SBIR Phase I 2006 Department of Health and Human Services
  6. Bioprocess for Xylitol from Hemicellulose

    Amount: $99,750.00

    In the production of ethanol from corn, the current process utilizes only the starch. Left unused is a significant amount of by-products, which also are produced during ethanol production. If these ...

    SBIR Phase I 2007 Department of Energy
  7. SBIR Phase I: Conversion of Biodiesel Glycerol to Xylitol Co-Product

    Amount: $148,864.00

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project focuses on the production of xylitol from glycerol, a byproduct of biodiesel production. By converting crude glycerol to a value-added co ...

    SBIR Phase I 2009 National Science Foundation
  8. Bioprocess for Xylitol from Hemicellulose

    Amount: $748,800.00

    When ethanol is produced from corn, only the starch is transformed, and a significant amount of byproducts is produced. If these byproducts, which are rich in sugars, could be made into a valuable pr ...

    SBIR Phase II 2008 Department of Energy
  9. Activated Sugars for Drug Discovery

    Amount: $773,902.00

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The overall goal of this proposal is to create a robust one pot, in vitro, multi-gram scale synthesis of activated sugars for drug discovery and biochemical resear ...

    SBIR Phase II 2009 Department of Health and Human Services
  10. Production of Activated TDP-Deoxysugars in E. coli

    Amount: $152,732.00

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The ultimate goal of the proposal presented herein is to use E. coli as whole cell biocatalysts for the production of a wide variety of TDP-deoxysugars including d ...
