Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): There is a very large and rapidly growing unmet need for disease-modifying drugs for Alzheimer's disease (AD) as its prevalence is increasing worldwide due to demographic shifts in the aging population. AD is the thirdmost costly disease in the US with… more
Abstract:CMOS-Integrated Fluorescence Biochip Arrays Abstract Array technologies have been responsible for a multitude of discoveries in genomics and proteomics. However, they require sophisticated and highly accurate instrumentation. Today, the bulkiness, cost, and complexity of array readers have become… more
Abstract:Diabetes is an epidemic disease in the United States and worldwide. Diabetes care accounts for 10% of all U.S. healthcare costs, most of which is consumed in the care of complications from diabetes, but also includes lost economic productivity from illness, disability and blindness. Despite the high… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Treatment of Human papillomavirus (HPV) infections is a major unmet medical need. Importantly, the licensed HPV vaccines are not able to clear existing infections, and there are now multiple FDA-approved tests to detecthigh risk HPV DNA, and specifically HPV16.… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Successful management of HIV1 infection with anti-retroviral therapy (ART) is critically dependent on choosing effective drugs. The spread of drug resistance HIV mutations poses a challenge (1-3) and drug resistance testing (DRT) has become an integral part of… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): There is a need to be able to deliver just-in-time training and reference materials for first responders and skilled support personnel. Mobile computing platforms are becoming ubiquitous and provide an ideal means to reach users at any time in any location. The… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project addresses separation needs of biopharmaceutical manufacturers by developing novel membranes with exceptional performance. Currently available membranes used to separate therapeutic proteins suffer from broad pore size variations, resulting in… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project is focused on the demonstration of a real-time high-contrast Terahertz (THz) imaging system, based on frequency upconversion of THz images into the near infrared (NIR) spectral range. Due to low power of compact THz sources and poor… more
Abstract:Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) operation represents a stressful, cognitively challenging domain where operators are routinely subjected to both occupational and combat stressors and performance failures can have catastrophic effects. Effective performance in such conditions has many dimensions,… more
Abstract:The synthesis of ammonia through nitrogen fixation is a vital component to all plant life and the world economy as a fertilizer and commodity chemical. The global industial production of ammonia exceeded 140MM tons in 2009 and is expected to grow to 160MM tons by 2020. Most ammonia,>90% is… more
Abstract:Registries offer an important way to collect uniform data with a view toward understanding the etiology of diseases, and to improving their treatment. A major constraint in establishing registries is the cost of data acquisition, especially when not available from existing sources. The CDC SB EMR is… more
Abstract:Recently, the availability of the high performance rare earth based magnets (Nd-Fe-B and Sm-Co) was jeopardized due to the Chinese monopoly of rare earth production, which undermines our national security and competitiveness in the defense and clean energy sectors and creates a strategic… 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.
