WOODBURY, NY--(Marketwired - May 4, 2017) - Research Frontiers Inc. ( : REFR) announced its financial results for its first quarter ended March 31, 2017. Management will host a conference call today at 4:45 p.m. Eastern Time to discuss its financial and operating results as well as recent developments including: (i) recent announcement by Japan Railway East of their adoption of Asahi Glass Corporation's Wonderlite SPD SmartGlass train windows, and (ii) the recent license agreement covering SPD SmartGlass for the automotive aftermarket. The Company's fee income from licensing activities for the three months ended March 31, 2017 was $393,116 as compared to $409,133 for the three months ended March 31, 2016. This $16,017 decrease was principally the result of exchange rate fluctuations and lower levels of sales of SLK and SL vehicles containing the Magic Sky Control option by Daimler offset somewhat by higher sales of the S-Class vehicles with the Magic Sky Control option. In the first quarter of 2017, the Company received royalty revenues from sales of the Magic Sky Control option on the S-Class sedans and coupe, and on the SLK and SL roadsters in excess of minimum annual royalty levels in its license agreements with our licensees who supply this glass to Daimler which resulted in accretive royalty revenue from these licensees. Sales of S-Class and roadster vehicles by Mercedes, and King Air aircraft, using the Company's SPD-SmartGlass technology were up by double digit percentages in the first quarter of 2017 as compared to the previous quarter. The Company expects that lower pricing of the Company's technology could expand the market opportunities, adoption rates, and revenues for its technology in automotive and non-automotive applications. The Company is working with all levels of licensees in the supply chain to further reduce the cost of final products using the Company's technology. Operating expenses decreased by $50,252 for the three months ended March 31, 2017 to $1,136,255 from $1,186,507 for the three months ended March 31, 2016. Research and development expenditures decreased by $198,924 to $211,293 for the three months ended March 31, 2017 from $410,217 for the three months ended March 31, 2016. Research Frontiers is the developer of SPD-Smart light-control technology which allows users to instantly, precisely and uniformly control the shading of glass or plastic, either manually or automatically. Research Frontiers has built an infrastructure of over 40 licensed companies that collectively are capable of serving the growing global demand for smart glass products in automobiles, homes, buildings, museums, aircraft and boats.

Funding agencies and decision-makers seek to support research with a high social impact. To identify this research, they need tools. Traditional evaluation of research has used peer review (before publication) and bibliometric indicators (afterwards). However, these tools evaluate research in terms of the values and needs of the research community, rather than those of society. Against this background, the strategic goal of the SISOB is develop novel tools making it possible to measure and predict the social impact of research. More specifically, SISOB will develop tools to measure and predict the social appropriation of research knowledge, modelled as the product of complex interactions within and between multiple, intersecting communities of scientists, journalists, industrial, decision makers and consumers. In this setting, the project will use computer-supported Social Network Analysis (SNA) to analyze how the topology of these networks can measure and predict the social impact of research. The specific goals of the project are thus to: (i) create a framework modelling the actors, relationships, communities and social networks involved in the social appropriation of research knowledge; (ii) design and implement tools and indicators making it possible to automatically collect, analyze and visually represent data describing these actors and their interactions; (iii) create data-driven models of specific actors, communities and networks relevant to three case studies; (iv) use the tools and indicators developed by the project to collect and analyze data relevant to the same studies; (v) use the results from these studies to validate the methods and tools developed; (vi) Implement, and release in open source, a platform for the capture and analysis of social network data relevant to measuring the social impact of research. The case studies are: mobility of researchers, knowledge sharing and peer reviewing processes.

Site-specific structural characterization of glycoproteins is important for understanding the exact functional relevance of protein glycosylation. Resulting partly from the multiple layers of structural complexity of the attached glycans, the system-wide site-specific characterization of protein glycosylation, defined as glycoproteomics, is still far from trivial leaving the N- and O-linked glycoproteomes significantly under-defined. However, recent years have seen significant advances in glycoproteomics driven, in part, by the developments of dedicated workflows and efficient sample preparation, including glycopeptide enrichment and prefractionation. In addition, glycoproteomics has benefitted from the continuous performance enhancement and more intelligent use of liquid chromatography and tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) instrumentation and a wider selection of specialized software tackling the unique challenges of glycoproteomics data. Together these advances promise more streamlined N- and O-linked glycoproteome analysis. Tangible examples include system-wide glycoproteomics studies detecting thousands of intact glycopeptides from hundreds of glycoproteins from diverse biological samples. With a strict focus on the system-wide site-specific analysis of protein N- and O-linked glycosylation, we review the recent advances in LC-MS/MS based glycoproteomics. The review opens with a more general discussion of experimental designs in glycoproteomics and sample preparation prior to LC-MS/MS based data acquisition. Although many challenges still remain, it becomes clear that glycoproteomics, one of the last frontiers in proteomics, is gradually maturing enabling a wider spectrum of researchers to access this new emerging research discipline. The next milestone in analytical glycobiology is being reached allowing the glycoscientist to address the functional importance of protein glycosylation in a system-wide yet protein-specific manner. © 2013 Elsevier B.V.
