Scientists at the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute for Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) have discovered that changes in the osmotic pressure of tissue or hydroscopic samples having a mass of less than about one microgram and that can exert a high osmotic pressure can be measured by this method.
The NICHD seeks research and co-development or licensees for a method of measuring small physical changes in small quantities of materials.
The National Cancer Institute (NCI) seeks licensing partners for a novel modified insect cell line, Sf9-ET, that can quickly and efficiently determine baculovirus titers during the expression of recombinant proteins from a baculovirus-based protein expression system.
Researchers at the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) have developed an apparatus that is used to image rodents while they are awake. The biological effects of agents on the rats can be imaged (via MRI for instance) in real time over a prolonged period of time.
The Biorepositories and Biospecimen Research Branch (BBRB) at the National Cancer Institute (NCI) has sponsored various initiatives for conducting biospecimen research. Through these initiatives, NCI seeks to advance biospecimen science and improve research reproducibility by investigating how different biospecimen collection, handling and processing procedures affect biospecimen molecular profiles. BBRB is seeking collaborators to extend these studies.
Researchers at the National Cancer Institute (NCI) seek licensing for an improved cell line called Tni-FNL which is capable of high level expression of heterologous proteins using baculovirus expression systems.
