OK Science, Technology Center Approves 13 Projects


Page, David, THE JOURNAL RECORD


The Oklahoma Center for the Advancement of Science and Technology board of directors has approved 13 high-tech projects totaling $2.9 million over three years.

Oklahoma companies involved in the research include Eagle-Picher Technologies, Miami; Newman Technologies, Norman; Quantum Construction Technologies, Okema; Nomadics, Stillwater; Environmental Labortories, Stillwater; York International, Norman; Sciperio, Stillwater; Inoveon Corp., Oklahoma City; and Pure Protein, Oklahoma City.

Universities involved in the projects include Oklahoma State University and the University of Oklahoma, including the Health Sciences Center. The Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation of Oklahoma City is also involved in two projects.

Matching funds for the projects will bring the total research and development investment for Oklahoma to $5.8 million. The research and development proposals were selected on a competitive basis, looking at scientific and technical merit and commercialization potential. The proposals were peer-reviewed and recommended for funding by a team of scientists, engineers, and business leaders, the majority of whom reside outside of Oklahoma, said W.A. Sibley, president of OCAST.

These joint-venture R&D projects are important to Oklahoma companies as they develop new products and services and strive to keep their economic advantage in very competitive world markets, Sibley said. These R&D projects are important to Oklahoma universities and nonprofit research centers because it provides them an opportunity to commercialize and capitalize on their intellectual knowledge. When all of this comes together, Oklahoma benefits because it helps companies build more high-skill and high-wage jobs for Oklahomans.

Technical summaries of the projects included:

* Don A. Lucca, OSU, and Gene Cantwell, Eagle-Picher, were awarded $298,961 for a three-year study, Creation of Epitaxy-Ready ZnO Substrates. This joint project between OSU and Eagle-Picher Technologies is aimed at developing a commercial process for the production of ultra-high quality ZnO substrates.

* Gerard Newman was awarded $300,000 for a two-year project, titled Advanced Oxidation System for Indoor Air Quality, to develop and commercialize an advanced air cleaning system. Newman Technologies will perform the research.

The project is a joint effort of Oklahoma State University and Quantum Construction Technologies, Okema.

* Jeanmarie Verchot, Arron Guenzi, and Brett Carver, OSU Department of Entomology and Plant Pathology, were awarded $176,664 for a three-year project, Transgenic Virus Resistant Wheat Seed Production. The Oklahoma Wheat Research Foundation and Oklahoma Foundation Seed Stocks Inc. support this project to benefit Oklahoma farmers.

* Brian Strecker of Nomadics was awarded $300,000 for a three- year project, Field-Modulated Microresonators. …
