BioMade logo

NH BioMade, a new five-year $20 million EPSCoR project funded by the National Science Foundation, will advance the rapidly growing New Hampshire biomaterials industry through knowledge generation, academic-industrial research partnerships, and workforce development. Addressing opportunities identified in the 2016 NH University Research and Industry Plan, this new grant will be used to develop innovative approaches for design and manufacturing of biomaterials, such as those used in implants and tissue engineering, which hold the potential to save lives and improve overall quality of life for patients.
