  1. 015: Development of an Integrated Automated High Throughput Platform for Large-Scale Genetic and Therapeutic Screening in Zebrafish

    Release Date: 08-25-2011Open Date: 08-25-2011Due Date: 11-07-2011Close Date: 11-07-2011

    Non-mammalian models, such as zebrafish, have emerged as powerful model organisms due to the availability of a wide array of species-specific genetic techniques, along with its short development time, fecundity and small size. For zebrafish larvae, their small size and optical clarity allows the use of powerful optical techniques that enable precise cellular visualization within the living animal, ...

  3. 044: Development of Induced Pluripotent Stem (iPS) Cell Lines for Use in Cell-based Bioassays

    Release Date: 08-25-2011Open Date: 08-25-2011Due Date: 11-07-2011Close Date: 11-07-2011

    Recent technology enabling the production of induced Pluripotent Stem (iPS) cell lines has created significant opportunities for the development of new cell lines as products for use as cell-based bioassays such as in screening assays. The technology provides the means to expand the iPS cell lines to the numbers needed for bioassay applications and will enable the derivation of cell lines with spe ...

  4. 058: Novel Technologies for Powering Ventricular Assist Devices

    Release Date: 08-25-2011Open Date: 08-25-2011Due Date: 11-07-2011Close Date: 11-07-2011

    Because the heart transplant donor pool in the United States is less than 2,500/year, ventricular assist devices (VADs) are the only realistic option for many late-stage heart failure patients. Currently, each year 2,000-5,000 receive VADs to bridge them to a heart transplant or as permanent (i.e. “destination”) therapy. However, the VADs currently available rely upon batteries that, despite r ...

  5. 063: Reagents for Studying Human Lung Cell Biology and Cellular Function

    Release Date: 08-25-2011Open Date: 08-25-2011Due Date: 11-07-2011Close Date: 11-07-2011

    Approximately half of the 44 cells that comprise the human respiratory tract still remain partially identified and their function(s) is incompletely understood (Franks et. al. Proc Am Thorac Soc 2008; 5: 763-6)). Suitable technologies are available to identify, sort, purify, culture, and determine cell surface markers or other unique identifying features that permit individual characterization of ...

  6. 064: Novel Technologies for Assessing Lipoprotein Sub-fractions

    Release Date: 08-25-2011Open Date: 08-25-2011Due Date: 11-07-2011Close Date: 11-07-2011

    Identifying cardiovascular risk factors and understanding the contribution of those risk factors for cardiovascular disease is critical. Identifying individuals at very high risk for CVD and aggressive intervention are a critical factor to minimize the population wide CVD burden. Determining low density lipoprotein (LDL) as well as high density lipoprotein (HDL) particle size distribution may prov ...

  7. 065: Computer Generated Diet and Exercise Reminders Promoting Cardiovascular Health

    Release Date: 08-25-2011Open Date: 08-25-2011Due Date: 11-07-2011Close Date: 11-07-2011

    Research has shown that an individual’s cardiovascular health is improved with daily exercise and a healthy diet, and work productivity benefits from improved health status. Computer-based reminders have been shown to improve compliance with targeted tasks. By combining these two proven techniques, the goal of this solicitation is to improve the cardiovascular health of program participants thro ...

  8. 066: Haptoglobin Treatment to Reduce Complications of Sickle Cell Disease

    Release Date: 08-25-2011Open Date: 08-25-2011Due Date: 11-07-2011Close Date: 11-07-2011

    The release of hemoglobin into the circulation contributes to morbidity and mortality in intense hemolytic states such as sickle cell disease (SCD). Free hemoglobin related vascular reactivity, potentially through nitric oxide scavenging and oxidative stress associated with the iron moiety of heme likely result in pulmonary arterial hypertension, stroke and the acute chest syndrome in SCD. A gluco ...

  9. 067: Transmit-receive Surface Array Coils for MRI of Patients with Internal Conductive Devices

    Release Date: 08-25-2011Open Date: 08-25-2011Due Date: 11-07-2011Close Date: 11-07-2011

    Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has the potential to guide non-surgical cardiovascular interventional procedures because it can visualize soft tissue, guide positioning of therapeutic devices, and assess treatment outcome, all without ionizing radiation. To ensure that such procedures can be carried out effectively and safely it is essential to have devices (catheters, guidewires, etc.) that have ...

  10. 068: Multilayer-coated Gratings for Phase-Contrast Computed Tomography

    Release Date: 08-25-2011Open Date: 08-25-2011Due Date: 11-07-2011Close Date: 11-07-2011

    In the United States computed tomography (CT) currently accounts for approximately 15% of all diagnostic imaging procedures. The number of CT scans has seen a threefold increase in the two decades leading to 2007 due to its unique capabilities. A CT scan produces high resolution, volumetric rendition of internal organs in a short period. CT scanners are relatively compact and economic to operate a ...
