Case ID Technology Description
2019-052 Inhibitors of IL-15 and their use in treating Autoimmune/Inflammatory disorders IL-15 controls the immune system by stimulating T cell proliferation and maintains the function of natural killer (NK) cells and memory T-cells. Using a combinatorial screening technology, our inventors discovered a new compound that is able to bind to and completely inhibit the function of the IL-…
2019-048 Narrow GREE-Emitting Phosphors The invention can be used as narrow band green emitting phosphor. Thereported composition can be synthesized via a two-step solid state reaction under normalatmospheric pressure with the second step in a weak reducing condition. The presence of therare-earth ions in the compound allow the material…
2019-038 Method for Camera Tamper Detection An unauthorized alteration in the viewpoint of a surveillance cameras is called tampering. This involves comparing images from the surveillance camera against a reference model. The reference model represents the features (e.g. background, edges, and interest points) of the image under normal…
2019-030 Computational Method for Breast Shape Modeling and Prediction Although computational models of breast shape have been developed, the ability to provide realistic simulations of the breast is still lacking. With improved techniques and a wide range of surgical options to consider, a flexible yet accurate breast model is necessary. Here, we present a novel…
2019-039 Method and Device for Light-Sheet Illumination and Imaging One of the main obstacles in disease diagnosis and treatment in developing countries is theinsufficiency of modern diagnostic tools.1 Even though highly sensitive and specific moleculardiagnostic tests have become more available, the current technologies are still limited in clinicallaboratory…
2017-012 Compliant, Cutaneous Tissue Perfusion Monitoring Array and Decubitus Ulcer Prevention Tool Our technology consists of a non-invasive imaging system that provides real-time, dynamic, quantifiable and clinically-relevant information about blood perfusion within the skin graft during and after transplantation. The proposed methodology is based on an optical technique called Near-InfraRed…
