Skin care actives are typically applied topically from an emulsion-based lotion, and performance can be limited by various factors. Identification of skin delivery technologies with optimal delivery kinetics are needed for new product development for skin care. View more information... (PDF)
Identify hair care ingredients or products that can be used to reduce water uptake at high humidity and decrease static in dry weather. These materials could be used to provide frizz reduction and control hair expansion. View more information... (PDF)
As manager of the International Space Station U.S. National Laboratory, the Center for the Advancement of Science in Space (CASIS) supports space-based research that improves healthcare, commercial products and the overall quality of life on Earth. Recently, CASIS announced the awardees from its first Request for Proposals (RFP), which was in the field of protein crystal growth—and soon CASIS will be announcing awardees from its second RFP, which focuses on materials science. Additionally, CASIS accepts unsolicited proposals at any time to encourage out-of-the-box ideas from new-to-space investigators. See our website for new funding opportunities and to read information about the unsolicited proposals process.
HESI - a global scientific foundation for collaboration - is developing a multi-sector effort to evaluate and identify key elements/criteria and tools to help trigger and guide the selection of safer, sustainable chemical alternatives while minimizing the likelihood of regrettable substitutions. This program has already engaged leading experts from regulatory bodies, academe, and industry to scope the current landscape via a February 2013 workshop at the NIEHS. The program is now seeking committed participants to further develop frameworks, create innovative approaches, and hone best practices!! Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with interest.
NASA’s SBIR/STTR TecFusion is a custom Open Innovation program designed to meet your technology needs. Through the NASA SBIR/STTR TecFusion Open Innovation process you can tap into a wealth of highly creative and often breakthrough research. Rather than attending conferences and other events in hopes of surfacing a potential partnership, TecFusion will bring highly vetted technologies to your organization. Leveraging the $2.6 billion invested annually in the SBIR/STTR Program leads to increased capability, reduced risk, lower cost, and shortened schedule for your program or project.
