Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): With recent radiation release from reactors in Japan and increasing probability of nuclear detonation somewhere in the world, there is a critical need for development of effective medicinal counter-measures that can bedelivered after exposure to prevent… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Pathogens responsible for many of the common human infectious diseases such as urinary tract infection (UTI), gastroenteritis, pneumonia, and wound infections have proven to be highly adept in acquiring mechanisms of antimicrobial resistance. Widespread… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Cachexia-anorexia syndrome is a life-threatening aspect to many diseases, in particular many forms of cancer or therapies for cancer. The obvious symptoms of this disease include lack of appetite, and a loss of lean body mass disproportionate to the reduction in… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT Conventional culture vessels are not designed for physiological oxygen delivery. Both hyperoxia and hypoxia - commonly observed when culturing cells and tissues in regular plasticware- have been linked to reduced cellular function and death. An adequate means to provide oxygenation is also… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Current NIGMS-SBIR funding supported InvivoSciences LLC's (IVS) launch of several product lines in 2010. IVS generated revenues from the sales of three-dimensional (3D) cell culture tools (MC-8TM and IVS InsertsTM) thatcan grow various hydrogel tissues… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Phase II of Stop, Look and Listen (SLL): Separating Fact from Fiction in Evaluating Cases of Child Abuse: an Interactive Learning Tool for Pediatricians seeks to improve the frequency of reporting and accuracy of childabuse assessment and reduce racial bias in… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): In this fast-track application, we propose to develop a Computer Adaptive Test (CAT) to provide universal ongoing, continuous progress assessment data of critical reading skills to teachers of students in grades 4 to 8.The primary purpose of this assessment will… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This proposed SBIR Phase II renewal will leverage the technical expertise of academic collaborators at Georgia Institute of Technology and ongoing relationships forged with behavioral health professionals to introduce key technical innovations to our existing… more
Abstract:The focus of this research will be on developing a tool to model the electromagnetic vulnerability and susceptibility of electronic systems, subsystems, and components to directed-energy HPM weapons. In particular, we propose to develop a conceptual framework consisting of an analytical approach and… more
Abstract:The focus of this research will be on developing an automated simulation tool called E3Expert-Plus that will predict and mitigate intrasystem (cosite) interference while integrating with existing databases of radio frequency (RF) component and equipment characteristics. As part of this effort we… more
Abstract:This effort considers the problem of Automatic Modulation Classification (AMC) using multiple asynchronous sensors in non-cooperative environments under low signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) regimes. The goal is to improve and demonstrate the performance of AMC systems on various weak signal scenarios in… more
Abstract:A mobile computing application will be developed for Apple iOS and Google Android based mobile devices. This application will be targeted towards healthcare providers who make routine use of mobile devices in their daily work. The application will be capable of capturing all information required for… more
Abstract:Current methods for heating seedling trays in the greenhouse envelope during colder climates include natural gas, geothermal as well as electric. The most common method of heating the greenhouse is with natural gas. Natural gas systems use a forced air commercial furnace to blow heated air onto the… more
Abstract:Innovation in perishable foodstuff track-and-trace is of critical importance to cost and time-sensitive customers such as the food industry where spoilage is of concern, safety and security are paramount, and counterfeit and bio-terrorism prevention are urgent priorities. The proposed research would… more
Abstract:Human Campylobacter disease caused by the foodborne pathogens, Campylobacter jejuni and Campylobacter coli, is a huge public health problem globally. The economic burden of this disease, which ranges from mild self-limiting diarrhea to devastating neurological complications, in the United States… more
Abstract:Agricultural breeding programs inevitably produce individuals on the non-desired gender, such as male calves on a dairy farm. These individuals are harvested or destroyed early on, to minimize the cost of supporting these animals. Nonetheless, they reduced the profitability and efficiency of these… more
Abstract:Our company has several vaccine candidates that could help in protecting animals from Johne's disease. In this phase of the project, we will test the performance of these vaccines in mice. Once proven protective, we will be able to run more tests on a ruminant model of infection that pave the… more
Abstract:Rural communities, comprised of both residential and commercial buildings, are struggling to maintain their populations and the vitality of their downtown districts and schools. They are spending significant dollars on energy bills and wasting as much as 25% of that energy. Buildings accounted for… 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.
