Programmable Biomaterials/Regenerative Medicine Grand Challenge #1

Theme: How to regenerate tissues/organs to optimally integrate with the host

Goal: Bring together clinicians, scientists, and engineers to explore new ideas and catalyze new collaborations to address key barriers to the translation of regenerative medicine technologies

Format: Short talks identifying clinical problems and emerging technologies, followed by breakout sessions to identify opportunities

Breakouts: Based on problems identified, what are transformative things UM can do to solve? We’re looking for big ideas that involve new, heterogeneous groups. Themes/challenges that emerge from breakouts will define an RFA

Outcome: Funding for collaborative proposals that emerge from the grand challenge session w/ criteria that proposals are novel and integrative, satisfying one or more of the following elements:
•High risk, cross-cutting, transformative
•Leverage strengths at UM in new ways
•Pull together new combinations of people
•Tackle new problems or existing problems in new ways
•Topics that will have greatest impact and potential for extramural funding
•We anticipate awarding 3 grants at ~100K each
Please join us for our 2-day VIRTUAL event January 24 and January 25.
