Phase 2 SBIR Active

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: BT
Budget: 09/01/17 - 08/31/19

The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project, if successful, will be the development of a microbial process for the economical and sustainable production of a highly potent natural acaricide, which is a pesticide that kills mites and ticks. Increasing wariness of synthetic insecticide...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: BT
Budget: 07/01/16 - 12/31/16

The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) project will be to reduce the incidence of Lyme Disease through the biomanufacturing of a novel natural acaricide. New cases of Lyme Disease have grown by nearly 50% over the past decade while the existing synthetic acaricides are dwindling in use due to re...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Northwestern University

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: EB-2012
Budget: 01/01/13 - 12/31/13

This Small Business Innovation Research (STTR) Phase I project aims to develop a novel, high flux terpenoid precursor pathway by circumventing limitations of the bacterial methyl erythritol-phosphate (MEP) pathway for the renewable production of monoterpenoids. Monoterpenoids are natural chemical precursors for several consumer products, and man...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: BC-2012
Budget: 01/01/13 - 12/31/13

This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will develop a custom-designed microbial biocatalyst for the renewable production of high value terpenoid biochemicals. Terpenoid biochemicals derived from essential oils are used in numerous consumer products and as food additives. Many of them accumulate in nature in various stereo-isomer...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: BC-2012
Budget: 01/01/12 - 12/31/12

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will address the potential of synthetic biology and metabolic engineering technologies to generate microbial strains over-producing a non-caloric natural sweetener. Current production and utilization of natural sweeteners is limited due to the high cost of the cultivation and product...
