Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project is to develop a hidden and noninvasive assistive device that can provide in-situ sensory feedback of head movement for patients with vestibular imbalance. Loss of vestibular feedback in the sensorimotor control loop of the human body… more
Abstract:This proposal is for the development of an innovative compact and mobile laser system to safely remove coatings from composite aircraft structures. The proposed laser based system will also be capable of preparing damaged composite surface for structural bonding. The use of lasers as a surface… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The overall objective of this research is to test the hypothesis that monoclonal antibodies to radiation-induced tumor neoantigens cause therapeutically beneficial immune responses in cancer models. We will study the efficacy of a mouse monoclonal antibody to a… more
Abstract:The function of many cancer related proteins is modulated by modifications such as phosphorylation and glycosylation. The development of antibodies that recognize site-specific phosphorylation has vastly improved our understanding of signal transductionand cancer cell physiology and regulation.… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Organ transplantation is one of the great success stories of modern medicine. However, the supply of suitable organs lags far behind the need and many patients die while waitlisted for organs. While there have been manyrecent strides in organ procurement,… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project proposes the development of novel enzymes (DNA polymerases) and other improvements for rapid detection of food-borne pathogens by DNA detection and amplification (PCR). PCR is a very fast and accurate method of pathogen detection,… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This grant will seek to develop a methodology that will allow us to test whether a promising new class of drugs for Alzheimer's disease is having the desired effect in the human brain. This methodology will allow pharmaceutical companies to make informed… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) by Mo-Sci Corporation in collaboration with the Indiana University School of Dentistry (IU) and the Missouri University of Science & Technology (Missouri S & T) proposes to use bioactive glass bone scaffolds for bone repair.

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.
