Marine Antifouling Peptide to Prevent Biofouling (2015-066)
This synthetic conopeptide analog, named Miata57, to the noradrenaline (NA) molecule enables antifouling action. This analog could potentially be manufactured and incorporated into commercial epoxy based paints and coatings to deter fouling marine invertebrates from settling, thus preventing biofouling. Marine coatings are used in commercial and military...

Luminescent Carbon Dots for Optical Imaging
Carbon dots (also called “carbon quantum dots”, “carbon nanodots”, etc.) represent a new class of photoactive nanomaterials that compete effectively with semiconductor quantum dots, a market that was valued at $961.4 million in 2013 and is projected to be larger than $5 billion in 2020. In addition to being benign and nontoxic,...

Engineered Aquaculture Ecosystem for Managing Wastewater
This aquaculture ecosystem utilizes low RPM paddlewheels to control water flow rate and feed fish waste to algae to reduce eutrophication effects. For every ton of fish produced as much as 66 kilograms of nitrogen waste and 10.5 kilograms of phosphorus waste are produced. The waste feeds plankton and algae, and in excess can lead to blooms and then...

Software Platform that Enables Large Scale Brain Wave Data Collaboration
This software platform, EEGnet, provides researchers with an efficient database to view and interact with electroencephalography (EEG) brain wave data. EEG is an electrophysical monitoring system that records electrical activity in the brain and is used most often to diagnose epilepsy. Traditionally, EEG research has been limited due to a lack of large-scale...
