Near-Term Translation of Regenerative Medicine Technologies for the Treatment of Civilian Blast Injuries – Call for Expressions of Interest

November 4, 2015

Following on from the successful partnership of the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and Find A Better Way (FABW) in 2013 and 2014 (which has resulted directly in FABW approving grants for six major research projects), this Call for Expressions of Interest aims to stimulate the academic community to propose approaches to accelerate the development of regenerative medicine technologies for the treatment of blast injuries, primarily in countries in which the civilian population is affected by landmines and other unexploded remnants of war.

This Call seeks to identify and support research  with near-term translation potential: therefore, research which is unlikely to result in technologies that are deployable within five years are excluded unless they are exceptionally innovative.

FABW is prepared to commit around £5 million funding to support one or two major research project(s) arising from this Call.
