Portable, Early Stage Breast Cancer Detection System
OPPORTUNITY Breast cancer is one of the most common types of cancer among women. In 2014, in the US, approximately 40,000 women died from breast cancer. The situation is much more serious in developing countries. Early detection and effective treatment are major factors contributing to the long term survival of the patient. Mammography is the curre...

Spectral Illumination Device Using Light-Emitting Diode (LED) Arrays
OPPORTUNITYReflectance and Fluorescence imaging are used in numerous medical and research applications, specifically endoscopic cancer screening. White light endoscopy (WLE) is the standard approach for colon cancer screening. However, traditional WLE relies on native tissue contrast (reflectance), and lacks specificity. Autofluorescence imaging (A...

Regulation of Osteopontin Using Hedgehog Pathway
OPPORTUNITY The role of developmental pathways such as the Hedgehog pathway has been studied for its involvement in several malignancies. The Hedgehog pathway activates signaling in cancer cells that causes them to proliferate, survive and be more aggressive. The Hedgehog pathway can be inhibited by small molecule inhibitors. Several of these inhib...

Novel Heart Attack Therapy: Caspase Inhibition Prior to Repurfusion
OPPORTUNITY Preventing heart muscle death (infarction) during a heart attack is an important goal of treatment. To this end, patients typically receive platelet inhibitors and early opening of the thrombosed artery (reperfusion), both of which aim to reduce heart muscle loss. This treatment has lowered, but not eliminated, mortality and morbidity i...

Multi-Well Plate System to Assess Cellular Mechanobiology
OPPORTUNITY In a sheet of endothelial cells, the cellular response to physical and chemical stimuli is often regulated uniquely by the mechanical microenvironment of the cell. However, the mechanical microenvironment which is composed of mechanical stretch, fluid pressure and shear stress, is not static. Monolayer stress microscopy (MSM) has enable...
