Not currently accepting applications. Interests in the interdisciplinary studies of science, technology, and medicine have expanded in the last twenty years, raising new questions in response to contemporary developments.
Apply Filters 3PrimeDx, Inc. Heart failure occurs in more than 3. This blood test will enable the optimization of the intervention by providing a simple, reliable, convenient to administer and cost-effective diagnostic Sas dissertation completion fellowship.
The PulsePredict blood test is based on technology developed by Dr. Dudley discovered that the biomarker changes in the heart leading to sudden cardiac death could also be detected in blood, allowing for a simple diagnostic test.
For homeowners, Ondo enables them to heat or cool their home based on how much they want to spend on electricity, not just on how comfortable they want to be. Acomni was started to put homeowners in control of their heating and cooling budget.
Acomni had its genesis in an algorithm created by Dr. Johnathan Sprinkle of the University of Arizona. While working with autonomous sensors to reconstruct river currents he realized that the analysis of river current flows could be applied to HVAC flows throughout a house.
Sprinkle developed the algorithm to do this and then he and his research team applied for the National Science Foundation Innovation Corps competition. Participation in I-Corps allowed them to fully develop their idea and flesh out its commercial value.
After being recognized as the best of 27 I-Corps teams, the group founded Acomni. Harvey Silverman and Dr. This technology, now used by Acoustic Magic, has revolutionized microphones. The speaker can move about the room freely and be heard with great clarity.
The technology is also used for speech dictation.
Silverman was supported by grants from the National Science Foundation. The Company's technology enables coatings to outperform all known alternatives in characteristics such as adhesion, stain resistance, scratch resistance and water and oil repellency.
Currently Aculon is focused on two platforms: The story of Aculon begins with the quest of Dr. Jeffrey Schwartz, Princeton chemistry professor, who sought to understand why orthopedic implants often failed after only years of use.
He wanted to see if new approaches to modification of the surfaces of implant materials could be achieved to improve their lifetimes. Schwartz and Bruner invented new surface chemistry to control interfacial properties of indium tin oxide ITO.
This scheme was novel in its ability to attach molecules with tunable properties thereby controlling the properties of the electrode itself. Materials Funding from the National Science Foundation supported the research behind the discoveries and technologies that led to Aculon.
Adarza products address broad quantitative analyte detection applications, including cancer biomarkers, drug and vaccine development, allergy, immunology and infectious diseases research. Adarza Biosystems is a leading developer and manufacturer of label-free biosensor assays and instruments servicing life science research, drug development and in vitro diagnostics customers.
Biomedical The work conducted at the University of Rochester was supported by research funding from the National Institutes of Health. Department of Agriculture, the University of Virginia has led research into adenosine, a molecule found in all cells.
The body uses adenosine to signal inflammation and tissue injury. Understanding this compound has the potential to unleash therapies to treat heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, cancer and atherosclerosis.
Joel Linden, University of Virginia professor of cardiovascular medicine and Timothy MacDonald, University of Virginia professor of chemistry recognized the power of this research.
They collaborated with business leader Robert Capon to establish a startup company based around University of Virginia patents in this area. At the end ofATL reacquired many of its programs, including Stedivaze. Stedivaze is now more than half way through Phase III trials. In collaboration with many different researchers, the company participated in a large number of Small Business Innovation Research grants, thereby enabling basic and translational research with federal funding.
In addition, tens of millions of dollars of University of Virginia basic research grants have been won using Adenosine Therapeutics compounds, and over scientific papers have been published on the pharmacology and physiology of adenosine.
The company has given over one million dollars to the University of Virginia Patent Foundation, employed numerous University of Virginia students, and has also participated in business school cases at the Darden Business School.The Public Health Informatics Fellowship Program (PHIFP) is a 2-year paid fellowship to apply information science and technology to the practice of public health.
A SUCCESS STORY. This website accompanies The Science Coalition’s Sparking Economic Growth reports. Each of the three reports highlights a different set of companies created from federally funded university research, totaling companies to date.
