The Human Genome Project has changed the landscape radically, and now they are going to do the same thing in Regenerative Medicine by bringing solutions, at scale, to the world’s population.
The U.S. Federal government is providing $80 million in kick starter funding over the next 7 years to bring together the regenerative medicine, organ-on-a-chip, tissue engineering, tissue and organ printing, pre-clinical drug safety testing, drug activity screening, 3D bioprinting, personalized oncology diagnostic testing, and tissue biofabrication expertise and capabilities from industry, institutions of higher education, and federal and state agencies to support a nationwide infrastructure to move ideas out of research and into large-scale production.
Between 2012 and 2014 seven federal agencies invested—that is, conducted or funded — approximately $2.89 billion in regenerative medicine research, but most of it has not yet seen the ‘light of day’ or is falling into the ‘Valley of Death’.
The DoD is coordinating the creation of Manufacturing Innovation Institutes in the United States and, via their Manufacturing Technology Program, have issued this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA).
One Million Solutions in Health (OMSiH) is partnering with Northeastern University, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Harvard University & the Wyss Institute, University of California Berkeley, Southwest Research Institute, The Huck Institutes of the Life Sciences, and others to submit to this program.
