25 Awards Won

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-00-18
Budget: 09/15/02 - 09/14/03

DESCRIPTION: (Provided by Applicant) The overall objective of this research effort is to develop bioelastic nanoparticles for the delivery of vaccines. The nanoparticle is to function simultaneously as adjuvant and as a controlled release device capable, with a single administration, of achieving primary and follow ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-99-41
Budget: 05/06/02 - 04/30/03

Description (provided by applicant): This Phase I SBIR research effort is to demonstrate feasibility of cushioning yet tougher bioelastic transdermal drug delivery patches for placement over pressure susceptible bony prominences for prevention of pressure ulcers, while more fully accessing the unique capacity of the patches for sustained release...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB012-016
Budget: 11/15/01 - 07/12/02

This Phase I SBIR to DARPA brings together five remarkable elements relevant to elastic protein-based polymers for the development of diverse nanosensors: i. the incomparable protein compositional control of biology, ii. a consilient mechanism of energy conversion utilizing inverse temperature transitions capable of eighteen classes of pair-wise...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 07/01/01 - 06/30/03

Using two biocompatible elastic protein-based polymers (in viscolelastic gel and elastic sheet forms), the Phase I study demonstrated both materials to be highly effective in preventing adhesions to the spinal dura in the rabbit laminectomy model. The specific aims of Phase II are: 1) to identify the preferred membrane and/or gel configuration(s...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 07/05/00 - 06/30/01

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 04/01/99 - 03/31/00

The broad, long term objective of this application is to provide a markedly less expensive, minimally invasive treatment for low back pain arising from intervertebral disc pathology. The specific alms are: 1) to design pressure-active and biocompatible viscoelastic protein-based polymers i) to effect proper intra-disc pressure development on imp...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 02/01/99 - 11/30/00

The primary long term objective is to develop an elastic protein-based polymer implant for the correction of stress urinary incontinence with the result of a stable lone lasting loose, elastic-fiber-containing connective tissue rather than dense scar tissue. During Phase I, five elastic protein-based p...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: Auburn University

Agency: Army
Topic: A97T005
Budget: 09/10/98 - 09/14/00

Contemporary petroleum-based plastics derive from a non-renewable resource and present environmental problems both in production and disposal. As demonstrated in Phase I, plastics can be prepared from renewable biological resources and therefore be of benign production and disposal. In particular, thermo-plastic protein-based polymers (TPPBP's...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 02/10/98 - 01/31/99

The primary long term objective is to develop an elastic protein-based polymer implant for the correction of stress urinary incontinence with the result of a stable lone lasting loose, elastic-fiber-containing connective tissue rather than dense scar tissue. During Phase I, five elastic protein-based p...
