Only written comments and/or applications for a license which are received by the NCI Technology Transfer Center on or before September 19, 2016 will be considered. DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES DATES: National Institutes of Health AGENCY: license may be worldwide, and the field of use may be limited to ‘‘Conjugate of Alpha-V beta-3 antagonist NIH–CC–013 for theranostic application to diagnose, prevent and treat oncological, infectious, ocular and cardiovascular disorders.’’ Jkt 238001 Requests for copies of the patent application(s), inquiries, comments, and other materials relating to the contemplated exclusive license should be directed to: Jaime M.

ADDRESSES: This technology concerns small molecule compositions that are antagonists for the receptor integrin avb3. Integrins are functional molecules for cell adhesion activity that are expressed by the majority of normal and cancer cells. They are trans-membrane heterodimer receptors that include two subunits, a and b chains, that primarily allow cell adhesion to extracellular matrix components such as fibrillar collagen, vitronectin and osteopontin. This technology may be useful for the development of diagnostics and therapeutics for cancers and other conditions involving the integrin avb3. The prospective exclusive license will be royalty bearing and will comply with the terms and conditions of 35 U.S.C. 209 and 37 CFR part 404.7. The prospective exclusive license may be granted unless within fifteen (15) days from the date of this published notice, the NIH receives written evidence and argument that establishes that the grant of the license would not be consistent with the requirements of 35 U.S.C. 209 and 37 CFR part 404.7. Complete applications for a license in the prospective field of use that are filed in response to this notice will be treated as objections to the grant of the contemplated Exclusive Patent License Agreement. Comments and objections submitted to this notice will not be made available for public inspection and, to the extent permitted by law, will not be released under the Freedom of Information Act, 5 U.S.C. 552.

SUMMARY: Microscopy Systems for Instant Internal Reflection Fluorescence/ Structured Illumination Description of Technology: Structured illumination microscopy (SIM) is a method that uses sharply patterned light and post-processing of images to enhance image resolution (in its linear form, doubling resolution). In traditional SIM, a series of images are acquired with a camera and computationally processed to improve resolution. This implementation of SIM has also been combined with total internal reflection fluorescence (TIRF), but the implementation still requires raw images relative to normal TIRF microscopy, thereby slowing acquisition 9-fold relative to conventional, diffraction-limited imaging. This TIRF/ E:\FR\FM\02SEN1.SGM 02SEN1 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 171 / Friday, September 2, 2016 / Notices SIM system includes a radial aperture block positioned at a plane conjugate to the back focal plane of the objective lens, thus allowing only high-angle marginal annular light beams from a laser source to excite the sample. The radial aperture block can be replaced with a digital micromirror device for varying the evanescent wave to allow nanometric localization of features in the axial direction. A spatial light modulator (SLM) can be used to alter the phase of the excitation to optimally induce evanescent, patterned excitation at the sample. Various embodiments of the TIRF/SIM system allows for highspeed, super-resolution microscopy at very high signal-to-noise (SNR) ratios for biological applications within ∼200 nm (e.g., the evanescent wave decay length) distance of a coverslip surface. Potential Commercial Applications: • High speed microscopy. Competitive Advantages: • Low cost of manufacture. Development Stage: • Prototype.
