Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Acute myocardial infarction is the leading cause of death in most industrialized nations. The estimated annual incidence in the US is 865,000 events, with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI, severe AMI)comprising an estimated 500,000 events per… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The saphenous vein is the most commonly used graft for coronary artery bypass and peripheral bypass surgery, but has poor patency. 15-20% grafts fail in the first month and approximately 25% in the first year. Early vein graft occlusion is typically due to… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will demonstrate a highly efficient supersonic ejector vapor compression technology that converts low-to-medium grade thermal energy (200-400F) into useful refrigeration (20F-50F) at high condenser temperatures (100-120F). The proposed… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Miniature flat plate oscillating heat pipe (FP-OHP) heat spreaders using ThermAvant's patent-pending ThermalCircuit architecture and low CTE materials will be demonstrated in order to transfer 100-300W/cm2 from chip-sized heaters (1cm2 to 3cm2) to a heat sink area that rejects heat… more
Abstract:The objective of Phase I is the preliminary design, prototype and testing of a 3D spectral imaging system for the characterization and evaluation of viability of engineered tissue for treating war injuries. The purpose is in ensuring tissue viability, maturity, vascularity to know if a construct is… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: High Energy X-ray computed tomography (CT) is used to inspect and evaluate the integrity of solid rocket motors (SRM"s). The driving purpose of this proposal is to improve the detection of defects in special cases where the defects are obscured due to limitations of the CT images. … more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This research will have a significant and potentially broad impact on reducing blindness and vision loss of Americans. Many predominant eye conditions, associated with blindness and vision loss, disturb and compromise the photoreceptors. This research will enable… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The proposal outlines work and time tables associated with finalizing the development of wear model concepts developed in Phase I work to predict the wear of two materials sliding with respect to each other while being subjected to high velocities and/or high pressures. In parallel with… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Currently, more than 60 % of end-stage renal diseases patients who require chronic hemodialysis are accessed through a native arteriovenous fistula (AVF) or synthetic graft (AVG). Unfortunately, primary failure rates were as high as 60 % at 6 months after AVF… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Recently, Drs. Randall Bateman and David Holtzman at the Washington University School of Medicine developed a novel stable isotope labeling kinetics (SILK) methodology for measuring the metabolism of amyloid beta (AB) in the human central nervous system (CNS).… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: MO-SCI Corporation and Missouri University of Science and Technology have developed and evaluated fusion welding technology applicable to ultra-high temperature ceramic (UHTC) composite joining during a Phase I ceramic joining program. This Phase II program will improve arc and reactive… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Improved long-term biocompatibility of coronary stents by plasma coating process Abstract Drug-eluting stents (DES) have been widely used to treat patients of cardiac disease due to their better ability to control restenosis than bare metal stents (BMS). However,… 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.
