Proteomics and Glycomics: New Technology (SBIR/STTR)

  • Initiative Number: PA-07-451 and PA-07-452
  • Objective: Encourage small business concerns to develop advanced technologies and methods to address biological problems in the field of proteomics and the sub-discipline of glycomics, particularly with respect to quantitative and real-time measurements.

Human Tissue and Organ Research Resource

  • Initiative Number: RR-07-006
  • Objective: Facilitate the procurement, preservation, and distribution of normal and diseased human tissue and organs to qualified biomedical researchers in the United States through a program that will result in eventual self-sufficiency of the research resource.

Anemia of Inflammation and of Chronic Diseases

  • Initiative Number: PAS-08-019
  • Objective: Conduct research that will lead to a better understanding of the pathophysiology and clinical impact of the anemia of inflammation or the anemia of chronic disease.
