Funding Agency:
Department of Defense

This solicitation, issued by the MTEC Consortium Manager (CM), Advanced Technology International (ATI), represents a Request for Project Proposals (RPP) for MTEC support of the U.S. Combat Casualty Care Research Program (CCCRP) (i.e., Joint Program Committee-6). Proposals selected for award as a result of this RPP will be awarded under the authority of 10 U.S.C. § 4022.  Strategic oversight for the award supported by this RPP will be provided by CCCRP. 

This RPP aims to develop a multi-institutional, interdisciplinary network of universities, companies, military laboratories, and investigators designed to promote a seamless integration of development, from research through translational and clinical research, as the best means of bringing regenerative medicine therapies to practice. The goal of this program is to accelerate the development of regenerative medicine prototypes to restore function to and heal injured Warfighters using this collaborative network, or consortium. The intent of the RPP is to make a single award to a Coordinating Site that can leverage the combined expertise of the DoD, industry, and academia to advance regenerative medicine prototypes to the clinic.
