Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This SBIR project is a collaborative effort between AC Diagnostics, Inc. and the University of Pennsylvania to develop and demonstrate a novel diagnostic system for automated on-site detection of viral pathogens in biomedical laboratory animals. Microbial… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Wheelchairs in the modern form have been around since at least 1760, when John Joseph Merlin invented pushrim propulsion. Manual wheelchairs are preferred by diagnosing physicians as the act of propulsion provides important cardiovascular exercise for the user.… more
Abstract:Biomass to biofuels can provide solutions for energy independence, lower cost of fuels and global climate change mitigation. However, to achieve the goal of converting biomass into biofuels, the biomass must be broken down into its component sugars so they can be fermented into fuels. Cellulases are… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): There is an urgent need for speech generating devices (SGDs) designed for young children with complex communication needs. Available SGDs are difficult for children to use and time consuming for adults to program. Without appropriate SGDs, children miss valuable… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Speech generating devices (SGDs) offer people with difficult to understand speech (dysarthria) a synthesized speech replacement for their natural speech. However, people who require SGDs often prefer using their natural speech because it is perceived as normal… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): We develop an integrated writing method named GWP that seamlessly switches between typing, word prediction, and predictive gesturing. Predictive gesturing enables a person to enter text by moving the mouse cursor toward a few letters in a word without requiring… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Chest pain in patients presenting to the emergency department (ED) present a clinical dilemma: transfer for emergent coronary revascularization, admit overnight for cardiac telemetry and stress testing, or discharge home with medical follow-up. In this proposal,… more
Abstract:Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer and the second leading cause of cancer death among women with more than one million new cases and 370,000 deaths worldwide yearly. Chemotherapy drugs, such as Doxorubicin, have been used in both pre- and post-operative adjuvant therapy or as the main… more
Abstract:The goal of this project is to develop multiple-biomarker imaging for detection of human papillomavirus (HPV) associated human cancer. Quantum dots (QDs) with multiple emission colors were chosen as optical probes to label the biomarkers on tissue. Attribute to the unique optical properties of… more
Abstract:Our goal is to develop easy1to use, inexpensive, and sensitive quantum dots(QDs) or quantum dots nano beads (QDnBs or QDBs) based rapid diagnostic strip test for folate and surrogate metabolites (homocysteine and methylmalonate) in a multiplex assay using quantum dots/quantum dots nano beads based… 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.
