Abstract:78167S05 Airborne particles significantly influence the radiative budget of the earth's atmosphere through direct scattering and absorption of solar and thermal infrared radiation, and through modification of the earth's cloud cover. Important to these effects is the aerosol size distribution and… more
Abstract:79160 Organic matter is a major constituent of airborne particles, comprising 20-50% of the PM2.5 mass in many regions; yet, its characterization is difficult. Especially important is the real-time characterization of organic matter at the molecular level. To better understand the effects of… more
Abstract:Current methods used for the destruction of CW agents are cumbersome, require extensive capital equipment such as incinerators and water reactors and pose potential environmental problems themselves. A novel approach for the destruction of CW agents involves genetically engineering microorganisms… more
Abstract:Current technologies for marking of landing zones as well as areas for search and rescue have significant drawbacks ranging from the additional weight of batteries for some systems to plastic and metallic debris left behind. There are clear advantages both operationally and environmentally to… more
Abstract:In this Phase I, Agave BioSystems proposes to develop a catalytic organophosphorus bioscavenger based on human paraoxonase 1 (PON1) for the protection of personnel against OP nerve agents. A catalytic bioscavenger that detoxifies multiple organophosphorus (OP) molecules by hydrolysis rather than a… more
Abstract:Healing of a wound is a complex and protracted process of tissue repair and remodeling in response to injury. Understanding how the body repairs damaged tissue and what genes and biochemical factors influence the wound healing process will have tremendous impact on the treatment of chronic wounds… more
Abstract:Cultured cell-based biosensors offer insight into the physiological action of the agent of interest, which is an advantage over other types of sensors. The development of cell-based biosensors that are field-portable would increase their utility in toxicology and environmental monitoring. One of… more
Abstract:Biofilms are ubiquitous in the environment. Few surfaces resist biofilm formation, most promote it. Biofilm formation poses problems in water systems as they can clog pipes and pores, block filters, reduce heat transfer, and in general restrict flow. Their metabolic products can aid corrosion,… more
Abstract:A PCR based assay has been developed to detect Leishmania parasites, but PCR requires sophisticated laboratory instruments and trained personnel to interpret the data. The parasite can also be identified in infected sand flies by skillful dissection and microscopic examination but this is… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The purpose of this research is to determine the efficacy of orally administered recombinant human lactoferrin (rhLF) in Phase II clinical trials in patients with mild to moderate asthma.
Asthma is one of the most prevalent chronic inflammatory diseases in the… more
Abstract:Leveraging our industry leading photonic delay commercial product offerings, Agiltron proposes to develop next-generation 8-bit time delay modules that meet the challenging requirements of lower insertion loss, higher switching speed, low weight, and low cost. Next-level performance will be… more

There are several categories such as “By Agency”, “By Year”, “By State” etc.
Select a checkbox within a category to refine your search results.
Each of your selections is listed in the “Narrow Search Filters” bar. You can uncheck these selections to remove them.
Search for Either Criteria
When you select multiple values within a category, the results will include values that match either of the selections.
For example, selecting “2005” and “2007” in the “By Year” category will display results that include either 2005 OR 2007 in the results.
Narrowing the Search Results
You can refine your search results across categories. To narrow down your results, select multiple values across different categories. The results will only include values that match the selections across the categories.
For example, selecting “2005” in the “By Year” category and “NASA” in the “By Agency” category will only display the results that contain both “2005” AND “NASA” in the results.
