Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will demonstrate the feasibility of the use of a debris cartridge in an implant to prevent obstruction in debris-releasing glaucomas, such as uveitic, pigment-dispersion, and pseudoexfoliation glaucomas. Glaucoma is a group of chronic eye… more
Abstract:An analysis of alternatives, including modeling, will be conducted of such candidates technologies such as localization, energy provision, and reporting, which are required for long-duration, LPD localization of various types of vessels operating in blue, green and brown water, with near-real time… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The primary objective of this research effort is to develop a next-generation time-gated ballistic imaging (BI) system for three-dimensional characterization of liquid breakup within dense fuel sprays. The temporal resolution will be varied using nonlinear time gating and pulse shaping… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: A new knowledge-based approach is proposed to mitigate the corrosion of metallic surfaces. The approach is based on the rational design of molecular coating materials based on a new class of phthalocyanines. While these materials resemble fluorinated polymers in their capacity to… more
Abstract:This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase I project takes an innovative approach at tumor targeting by investigating an entirely novel tumor targeting platform that utilizes bone marrow derived, circulating tumor homing cells as natural vectors. Through screening of phage display peptide… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Smoking among pregnant women poses risks to the baby; yet, up to one-third of women continue to smoke during pregnancy. Obstetric providers are charged to help women quit. Most providers, however, have not learned the most effective counseling methods. Programs… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This proposal aims to test the feasibility of a software application for the collection, analysis, and reporting of audio-recorded provider-patient conversations. The proposed application makes it possible to efficiently collect and use provider-patient… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): According to the American Cancer Societylts 2009 report, one in eight women will develop breast cancer in her lifetime. Early detection of breast cancer through periodic screening using x-ray mammography has been highlyeffective in lowering mortality-rates.… 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.
