Grants and Awards

Thanks to Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) grants under the auspices of the National Institutes of Health, our research programs include in-vivo detection, localization, and enhanced treatment of: (1) breast cancer; (2) ovarian cancer; (3) leukemia; (4) determination of transplanted organ rejection; and (5) neuropathological diseases, including Alzheimer's disease. These programs utilize our expertise in biomagnetic sensors and superparamagnetic nanoparticles targeted to specific cells through coatings of antibodies or other agents.
