Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The objective of this proposal is to examine the efficacy of CLT-005, a novel small molecule inhibitor of Stat3, for treating inflammatory and vascular leakage of the retina of diabetic retinopathy. Retinal blood vesse
l formation is known to be mediated by the… more
Abstract:Technological advances in energy harvesting (EH) offer significant benefits to powering micro aerial vehicles (MAVs) by extending mission length and range. Currently, batteries limit the range and mission time of MAVs since the batteries contain a finite supply of energy. The proposed research is… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Most cancer deaths occur from metastatic tumors rather than from the primary tumor alone. Although many of the new drugs in the past decade are directed against tumors , changes in overall cancer survival have only been
modest. Most cures of cancer are still… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Accurately estimating individualized probability of developing breast cancer over time is clinically useful for early detection and prevention. InterGenetics Incorporated has developed OncoVue(R), a model incorporating
multiple, commonly occurring genetic… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The goal of this project is to develop a large-scale genotyping tool for metabolic muscle disease that can be applied to certain high risk groups in order to prevent life-threatening symptoms that are fast becoming a
public health problem. The triggering of… more
Abstract:Todays world and political climate lends itself to potential attacks by hostile forces and terrorists where both exterior and interior surfaces of vehicles, buildings, or equipment could become contaminated with biological warfare (BW) or chemical warfare (CW) agents. RTA Systems, Inc., proposes a… more
Abstract:The capture and use of carbon dioxide (CO2) from industrial plants for use in CO2 flooding of marginal oil reservoirs provides a dual use opportunity prior to final CO2 sequestration in the depleted reservoir. Miscible CO2 flooding processes greatly increase the recovery of crude oil from a… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The development of safe and effective female oral contraceptives (OCs) in the early 1960s provided a superior means of contraception and forever changed the dynamics of family planning. In fact, 82% of all women in the
U.S. have used OCs, which are one of the… more
Abstract:The Green Team, Inc. (tGT) will conduct Phase I research to determine characteristics of green product-service systems (GPSS) in the building products industry that effectively improve human health and the environment (e.g., improve sustainability). Knowledge of effective GPSS characteristics will… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Cancer is a group of diseases characterized by uncontrolled growth and spread of abnormal cells. Over one million people get cancer each year. Approximately one out of every two American men and one out of every three A
merican women will have some type of cancer… more
Abstract:ZAI proposes to investigate advancing the capabilities of our Smart Towed Vehicle to be mounted and operated onto a more diverse range of aircraft and applications. Currently the STV has been fully tested and operated on a Twin Otter. During Phase I ZAI will look at mounted options for other… more
Abstract:High-performance infrared detectors are mission-critical components of each layer of the Ballistic Missile Defense System. MDA is investing heavily in technologies that enhance producibility/operability of LWIR/VLWIR infrared focal plane arrays (FPAs), and reduce BMDS life cycle costs. HgCdTe is… more
Abstract:The yield and operability of high performance infrared detectors, particularly those based on HgCdTe, are severely compromised by materials defects.

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.
