Rapid Nuclear Receptor Fluorescence-Based Competitive Binding Assay
Project ID: 2019-47Background:Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors (PPARs) are a class of nuclear receptors that have become significant targets for addressing various metabolic disorders, including lipid dystrophies and diabetes. PPARs are nutrient receptors that have different selective and promiscuous ligands, including fatty acids and eicosanoids....
Additive for improved stability of perovskites against water
Project ID: D2019-50BackgroundPerovskites are commonly used in photovoltaics, LEDs, and water splitting devices. Despite success in increasing cell efficiencies using perovskites, their instability against moisture limits their practical application. Incorporating hydrophobic materials into the perovskite has been used to mitigate this problem, but...
PERC-like contact for CdTe Solar Cells
Project ID: D2019-40BackgroundCdCl2 activation is a well-known method to passivate grain boundaries for CdTe solar cells. In crystalline silicon solar cells, manufacturers have started to modify film structures to incorporate a passivated layer. These are called Passivated Emitter and Rear Cells (PERC). The additional layer decreases the recombination...
Novel active flow control system for improved performance of VTOL aircrafts
Project ID: 2016-66Technology summary:The market of Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) with a CAGR of 19.11% is at its strongest point that will lead the world in several areas such as communications, surveillance, automobile, intelligence, and defense. VTOL Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) that has ducted-fan are known for superior stationary aerodynamic...
Thermoresponsive Injectable Microparticles-Gel Composites with Low Dose of Recombinant BMP-9 and VEGF for Bone Repair
Project ID: D2019-30Background:With an estimated 6.3 million bone related injuries in the US, the cost for treating has skyrocketed. While autograft methods are associated with morbidity and pain along with high resorption rate, allograft methods are prone to a high risk of disease transmission and immunogenic rejection. Thus, there is an increasing...
Telestroke Eye Examination Accessory
Project ID: D2019-08Background:With more than 17 million deaths annually, Stroke is a leading cause for adult disability. About 87 percentage are made up by acute ischemic stroke that occur due to obstruction of blood vessels are triaged via telemedicine. Some strokes are present with visual symptoms or vertigo with visual disturbances. However, it...
Novel Surgical Instrument Sleeve System
Project ID: D2019-29Background:Surgical instruments are designed to perform various surgical procedures and sutures are used to close the edges of incision or wounds or to repair damage tissues. During certain surgical procedures, often surgeons uses forceps to manipulate tissue and to align the tissue for passage of the needle. However, due to the...
Pyrrole-Based Composites for Metal Extraction and Analysis
Project ID#: D2018-57Invention DescriptionThe researchers at the University of Toledo have developed a chelating polypyrrole powder that can be used for filtration by directly mixing with samples and passing the sample through a filter. Desorption is then accomplished by simply dropping the pH. Applications• Selective microextraction devices•...
Magnetic Ionic Liquids Based Extraction and Purification of Nucleic Acids
Project ID # D2014-41Background:With a market of $3 billion in 2018 growing at a CAGR of 9.6 %, the nucleic acid isolation and extraction is one of the complex achievements in modern science. The analysis of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) plays a central role in a variety of applications such as determining microbial diversity in environmental samples,...
Sensor for detection of ice accumulation and liquid water content in wet snow
Project ID# D2019-13BackgroundLiquid water content (LWC) of snow is the ratio of the weight of water contained to the total weight of the wet snow. LWC of snow influences its density, adhesion to surfaces, and snow cohesiveness which determines its stability, shedding, and melting runoff. Ice build-up can fall from structures, such as bridges, causing...
