Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 09/30/98 - 03/29/99

An increase in the number of immunocompromised patients and the incidence of drug-resistant infections has created a significant challenge for the pharmaceutical industry in the area of antifungal therapeutics. Traditional antifungal drug discovery and development involves a one- target approach that ta...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 08/01/98 - 01/31/99

With the entire genomic sequence of the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae determined, the question of gene function can be now be addressed in a eukaryotic organism on a genomic level. Acacia Biosciences, Inc., is developing a novel technology whereby reporter genes are used to monitor the expression level of...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 08/01/98 - 01/31/99

Knowledge of human gene function is necessary for identifying molecular targets for drug therapy. Although only 400 gene products are targeted by existing pharmaceutical compounds, there are thought to be ten times that number of potential targets present in the human genome. The spectacular growth of c...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 07/01/98 - 06/30/99

The goals of this project are to further characterize the newly discovered Rcelp, a protease involved in the processing of Ras, and to identify inhibitors that may find utility as anti-cancer therapeutics. Studies in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae have demonstrated that loss of Rcelp causes a ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 12/01/97 - 05/31/98

This project will use gene reporters to a large spectrum of known eukaryotic genes to define the transcriptional and translational response of cells to treatment with drugs. The identification of genes whose expression changes in response to drug treatment will reveal nearly every aspect of ...
