Tissue regeneration resource centers seek pre-proposals for interdisciplinary translational projects
Two NIH-supported resource centers—part of NIDCR’s Dental, Oral, and Craniofacial Tissue Regeneration Consortium (DOCTRC)—are currently soliciting pre-proposals for their Interdisciplinary Translational Project (ITP) programs. The one-year awards of up to $150,000 will enable ITP teams to access and collaborate with a resource center to establish technology readiness toward submission of IND/IDE applications to the FDA for therapies in the dental, oral, and craniofacial realm.
The two DOCTRC resource centers aim to drive promising dental, oral and craniofacial tissue engineering and regenerative medicine technologies toward human clinical trials. Application forms are specific to each resource center, but they use similar criteria for project selection, and applicants may apply to either resource center.
- The Center for Dental, Oral, and Craniofacial Tissue and Organ Regeneration (C-DOCTOR) represents a partnership among several California institutions.
- The Michigan-Pittsburgh-Wyss Regenerative Medicine (MPWRM) Resource Center is a partnership between University of Michigan, the University of Pittsburgh/McGowan Institute, and Harvard University/Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering.
Both resource centers are now accepting pre-proposal ITP applications from teams and investigators from U.S. and foreign academic/non-profit institutions and from U.S. for-profit entities. The two-page pre-proposals are due on July 27, 2018. For more information, visit C-DOCTOR or MPWRM Resource Center.
