Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Biosight, LLC

Institution: Massachusetts General Hospital

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

The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Technology Transfer Research (STTR) Phase I project will be, if successful, enabling the development of the smallest Raman spectroscopy-capable fiber probe ever developed. The optimization of a smaller Raman-capable probe will improve a broad range of clinical applications such as co...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Argosy Omnimedia, Inc.

Institution: Massachusetts General Hospital

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: SH-2013
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project is found in the proposed technology development that facilitates direct, ubiquitous acquisition of key biomedical data, with little or no human intervention or introduction of errors, has the potential to reduce the costs of healthcare and t...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Luna Innovations, Inc.

Institution: Massachusetts General Hospital

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF07-T033
Budget: 11/07/08 - 11/07/10

Military trauma can result in peripheral nerve injury, including nerve laceration, requiring surgical reattachment. Surgical repair involves excising the damaged section of the nerve, leaving a gap that must be bridged to recover nerve function. Standard of care for segmental nerve injury is to fill the gap with a donor nerve graft. This leads...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Physical Sciences, Inc.

Institution: Massachusetts General Hospital

Agency: Army
Topic: A06-T028
Budget: 09/11/07 - 09/09/08

Cortical spreading depression (CSD) is a region of transient electrical and metabolic failure that propagates through peri-lesional brain tissue. Although characteristics of CSD have been shown to be relevant to injury outcome, subdural electrode measurements, currently in use, restrict monitoring only to patients requiring craniotomy. A portabl...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Physical Sciences, Inc.

Institution: Massachusetts General Hospital

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF04-T022
Budget: 09/30/05 - 09/30/07

Advanced imaging technologies now exist to detect tissue changes that occur due to retinal laser injuries not discernable with fundus photography. Recent developments at Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) and the Wellman Laboratories of Photomedicine (MGH/Harvard) have made it possible to combine new technologies into a single, affordable field-deplo...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Nomadics, Inc.

Institution: Massachusetts General Hospital

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD05-T003
Budget: 08/30/05 - 07/29/06

The goal of the proposed research is to develop a highly sensitive, high-throughput, and miniaturized assay system for rapid detection of brain injury-specific biomarkers in serum. The assay will be integrated into a portable detector so results can be immediately communicated to the health-care provider for assessment and appropriate treatment...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Energid Technologies

Institution: Massachusetts General Hospital

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD05-T004
Budget: 08/02/05 - 03/01/06

A high fidelity trauma surgery and presurgery training system is needed to improve the emergent operative management of trauma injuries. In this project, Energid Technologies will tailor its medical simulation software to the burr hole and trauma flap procedure. The approach includes using machine vision algorithms to track hand and tool movem...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Physical Sciences, Inc.

Institution: Massachusetts General Hospital

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF04-T022
Budget: 09/30/04 - 06/30/05

Advanced imaging technologies now exist to detect the tissue changes that occur due to retinal laser injuries that may not be visible with fundus photography. Very recent developments at Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) and the Wellman Center for Photomedicine have made it possible to combine these technologies into a single, affordable field-deplo...
