Award List:

SBIR Phase I: Shape Memory Polymer Based Orthopedic Fixation Devices

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Jeffrey A. Tyber, MS
Award Amount: $99,940.00
Abstract:
The Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will focus on the application of shape memory polymers to the development of orthopaedic fixation devices, primarily for ACL reconstruction. Shape memory polymers are capable of storing a temporary deformed shape for an extended period… More

SBIR Phase II: Shape Memory Polymer Based Orthopedic Fixation Devices

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Jack C. Griffis, MME
Award Amount: $499,826.00
Abstract:
The Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project includes the design, development and commercialization of shape memory polymer orthopedic soft-tissue fixation devices. Current soft tissue fixation devices are primarily metal or plastic screws used to attach tissue grafts to bone in… More

SBIR Phase I: Multi-Activated Shape-Memory Polymers for Cast Immobilization

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Christopher M. Yakacki, PhD
Award Amount: $99,857.00
Abstract:
The Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project aims to develop a new material and methodology for cast immobilization of an injured or surgically repaired area. The work focuses on using multi-functional shape-memory polymers with multiple activations to create an adaptive cast.… More

Expandable Shape-Memory Polymers for Suture Anchors

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $97,534.00
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This project will develop a shape-memory polymer suture anchor capable of dynamic expansion and is specifically designed for patients with poor bone mass density. Suture anchors are screw or wedge-like devices that fast en into the bone and are used to secure a… More

Drug-Eluting Bioresorbable Polymer Scaffolding for Treatment of Aortic Aneurysms

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Jack C. Griffis
Award Amount: $159,056.00
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This proposal is focused on the development of a bioabsorbable polymeric scaffold intended to provide both time-release delivery of therapeutic agents as well as structural support in the treatment of aortic aneurysms. An abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is a… More

Compliant Shape Memory Polymer Device for Meniscal Repair

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Kathryn E. Smith – 678-235-3304
Award Amount: $149,999.00
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The objective of this project is to develop compliant meniscal repair devices based on shape memory polymers. The repair device will be inserted in a less invasive temporary shape and then triggered to expand into its permanent functional shape. Meniscus repair… More

Development of a Surgical and Transcatheter Polymeric Heart Valve

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / STTR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Research Institution: EMORY UNIVERSITY
Principal Investigator: Jack C. Griffis – 678-235-3311
Award Amount: $150,000.00
RI Contact:
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): 10.3 million Bioprosthetic heart valves (BHV) have been implanted since 1980 in the United States alone, but the solution for a durable, non-calcifying bioprosthesis still eludes us. High rates of structural failures and rapid calcificationin BHVs, has veered a… More
