Abstract:Enterotoxigenic Escherictia coli causes diarrhea (E. coli scours) in young weaned pigs. There currently are no licensed killed vaccines for the disease, and the available living vaccines do not express toxins which should be a major target of a vaccine. This lack of toxin antigens may affect how… more
Abstract:Development and production of materials to serve as quality control standards during evaluation of candidate materials for IPE and ColPro Acquisition Programs will be accomplished utilizing advanced nanocomposite technology. In our process, polymeric membranes serve as the building blocks for the… more
Abstract:This SBIR Phase I project proposes development of a technologically feasible batch process for making nitrocellulose-nanothermite composites in a granular form for the ignition of propellants. The R & D will focus on the determination of burn rates, dynamic pressure profiles and ESD… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will develop a costeffective butanol production and purification process. The specific aim of this project is to scaleup a butanol production system from a small, ?laboratory scale? ,2 liter volume, to a 200 liter culture volume in order… more
Abstract:This SBIR Phase I project will study novel algal strains to produce large amounts of high quality animal feed using on-farm resources including spare heat, flue gas, and livestock manure. Research will focus on algal growth under cool climate and low sun conditions to achieve reliable year-round… more
Abstract:We have established that E. coli heat labile enterotoxin (LT) is an excellent mucosal adjuvant (immune enhancer) for stimulating immunity in young pigs and does not cause diarrhea or other adverse reactions when administered by intranasal inoculation, even at a relatively high dosage.… more
Abstract:Computers have become ubiquitous and store huge amounts of sensitive data. An article in InformationWeek highlighted the problem: "More electronic records were exposed in 2008 than in the previous four years combined and most of those breaches -- nine out of 10 -- could have been easily avoided with… 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.
