Methods for detecting exposure to cyantoxins
Project ID: D2018-46Background Harmful Algal Blooms (HAB) are becoming more frequent worldwide due to factors such as temperature increase and pollution. Microcystins (MC) are carcinogenic toxins released by the algae during a blooms. MC exposure can occur via skin contact, inhalation, and ingestion and can cause illness in people and animals. MC d...
Ventilator-Associated Events (VAE) Clinical Risk Calculator
Project ID: D2017-40Background Mechanical ventilators are used to help patients breathe, but there are significant risks associated with its use, such as longer hospital stays and increased mortality risk. The CDC developed a set of surveillance definitions that contribute to benchmarking the quality of care for ventilated patients. Ventilator ass...
A new class of HDAC inhibitors with a new metal-binding group
Project ID: D2018-08Background Cancer is group of diseases characterized by uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells. Selectivity towards cancer cells has been challenging, resulting in treatment options with severe side effects. Histone deacetylases (HDAC) are highly expressed in cancer cells and have been investigated for cancer drug development. O...
Unique family of trianionic ligand precursors provide unprecedented control over polymer properties
Project ID: D2009-89IP Status: U.S. Utility Patent #8,524,846 Invention Description: These trianionic ligand precursors are useful in making proprietary constrained geometry complexes (CGCs) that can potentially function as single-site homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysts. These cataly...
