The National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD), Division of Intramural Research, is seeking statements of capability or interest from parties interested in collaborative research to further develop, evaluate, or commercialize clinical samples with genetic mutations associated with endocrine tumors.
Researchers at the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) have developed a cell line that stably over-expresses GPR101. GPR101 inhibitors and agonists may be used to treat gigantism, acromegaly or dwarfism.
The NICHD seeks licensing and/or co-development research partners to collaborate on the identification and characterization of GPR101 inhibitors (antagonists and inverse agonists) and agonists with the goal of identifying agents to treat gigantism, acromegaly or dwarfism.
The Section on Translational Neuroscience of NICHD seeks parties interested in licensing and/or collaborative research to co-develop this therapeutic management of Menkes Disease and related copper transport disorders.
The Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) is seeking parties interested in co-development or licensing a substrate reduction therapy for Smith-Lemli-Opitz Syndrome (SLOS) and other diseases which have a secondary Niemann-Pick type C disease like cellular phenotype.
The Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) seeks licensing and/or co-development of two novel gene therapy vectors for the treatment of glycogen storage disease type Ib (GSD-Ib).
Researchers at the NICHD seek licensing and/or co-development research collaborations for a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) method to quantitatively measure in vivo the estimated conduction time of nerve impulses in the brain.
Scientists from the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) have developed a novel diffusion Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) experimental and modeling framework to measure new and useful microanatomical features of white matter (and gray matter), which are closely related to the function of the central nervous system (CNS) or peripheral nervous system (PNS). This invention is available for licensing or co-development partners.
Researchers at the NICHD developed a method for non-invasively determining the distribution of pore lengths and radii within a matrix thereby characterizing cognitive defects observed in patients with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). The NICHD seeks licensing and/or co-development research collaborations to bring this invention to the public.
The Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) seeks research co-development partners and/or licensees for development of a new chemical entity and monomeric and oligomeric compound embodiments for development as a male contraceptive.
In collaboration with the National Cancer Institute (NCI), researchers at The Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute on Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) have discovered monoclonal antibodies that bind to matrilin-3, a protein specifically expressed in cartilage tissue, that could be used for treating or inhibiting growth plate disorders, such as a skeletal dysplasia or short stature. The monoclonal antibodies can also be used to target therapeutic agents, such as those for anti-arthritis, to cartilage tissue. NICHD seeks statements of capability or interest from parties interested in collaborative research to co-develop, evaluate, and/or commercialize treatment of skeletal disorders using targeting antibodies.
Researchers at the NICHD seek licensing and/or co-development research collaborations for an MRI method that is based on the measurement and acquisition of multiple pulsed field gradient (m-PFG) rather than the previously used single pulsed field gradient (s-PFG) MRI sequences.
The marginal distribution constrained optimization (MADCO) methodology is disclosed wherein a 2D (or higher-dimensional) spectrum is estimated from initial 1D marginal distribution data. These 1D marginal distributions are used as constraints in the reconstruction of the 2D spectra. MADCO accelerates and improves the reconstruction of multidimensional NMR relaxation/diffusion spectra, making it suitable for MRI applications on a voxel-by-voxel basis by vastly reducing the amount of data acquired and data necessary for creating MRI images.
The Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute for Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) seeks research and co-development partners or licensees for an invention that discloses the diagnosis of pathologies in tissue related to changes in cell size, cellularity, cell infiltration, and other abnormalities detected by bulk water diffusion changes.
The Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, Section on Molecular Neurobiology seeks parties interested in licensing or collaborative research to further evaluate or commercialize specific rabbit monoclonal antibodies generated against the ErbB4 receptor (also known as HER4) that have been validated for specificity using tissue sections and extracts from ErbB4 knockout mice.
The National Institute of Child and Human Development seeks interested parties to further co-developa cell line with mutations in PRKAR1A, associated with tumor formation, for use a diagnostic or research tool.
GSD-Ia is an inherited disorder of metabolism associated with life-threatening hypoglycemia, hepatic malignancy, and renal failure caused by the deficiency of glucose-6-phosphatase-alpha (G6Pase-alpha or G6PC). NICHD seeks parties to license this invention towards commercialization.
