Medical Technology Enterprise Consortium (MTEC) -- Quality Assurance for Biomanufactured Regenerative Medicine Products (Qual-Regen)

Funding Agency:
Department of the Army

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 USAMRDC Clinical and Rehabilitative Medicine Research Program (CRMRP). Military relevance is a critical component of Solution Brief submission. Strategic and tactical oversight for the award(s) supported by this RPP will be provided by the Joint Program Committee 8 (JPC‐8)/CRMRP.

This RPP focuses on quality management of biomanufacturing processes and/or development of a prototype for a universal biomanufactured product or process. Applications should clearly state innovative solutions for the biomanufacturing of regenerative medicine products and regulatory strategies to obtain FDA clearances or approvals, if appropriate. This RPP offers the opportunity for industry funding to join the project as it leads to stronger leveraging of Governmentcontractor collaboration. While not a requirement, Offerors are strongly encouraged to include Cost Share as appropriate.

Solutions Brief Due Date: April 14, 2020
