Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The goal of this small business innovation research grant is to develop and commercialize a highly accurate, minimally invasive risk stratification technique for colorectal cancer (CRC) that is simple enough to be performed by the primary care provider during an… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project addresses a critical need for accurate patient diagnosis in the development of effective therapeutics for Alzheimer's Disease and other dementias, and in patient treatment. The high variability of patients selected for dementia… more
Abstract:Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and toxic industrial chemicals (TICs) both pose a significant threat to DoD personnel both in the field as well as in established infrastructure such as large buildings. Current VOC/TIC protection technologies suffer from incomplete removal of contaminants, high… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research Phase II project will result in the continuing development of novel ultrafast, highly selective, high permeability ion-exchange fiber composites (IXFCs) for removing perchlorate from drinking water. The proposed material removes perchlorate 10-100 times faster… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project will develop a state of the art 3D imaging system to objectively assess, track and archive gait, balance and range of motion. The prototype will be designed for use by a professional health care provider, such as a physical therapist.… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project is aiming to develop and validate a point-of-care monitoring for tacrolimus, an immunosuppressive medication widely used by organ transplant patients. The product being developed combines the existing, well-developed and low cost… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project will advance the development of electrostatic surface haptics as a means of providing tactile feedback for touchscreens. In electrostatic surface haptics, a user's finger(s) are selectively pulled down to a glass surface by an… more
Abstract:AuraSense Therapeutics is developing oligonucleotide-modified gold nanoparticles called Spherical Nucleic Acid (SNA) constructs, which are a powerful new way of regulating cellular gene expression. AuraSense Therapeutics will use SNAs as genetically programmable antimicrobial agents in a manner to… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Diagnostic imaging in modern dental practice still relies mainly on visual inspection or x-ray radiography, a technology that remains largely unchanged since the late 1800s. The early detection of small caries and the evaluation of microscopic enamel cracks prior… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Diagnostic Photonics, Inc. (DxP) is a medical device company developing an intraoperative imaging system for surgical guidance and real-time assessment of cancer tumor margins based on interferometric synthetic aperturemicroscopy (ISAM), a novel modality that… 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.
