Regenerative medicine at the front line

Main Content

This Defence and Security Accelerator themed competition seeks to make a real difference in saving lives and reducing disability following serious injury through two challenge areas:

  • Bioengineered blood and blood components
  • The preservation and regeneration of soft tissue using biophysical approaches

 The outputs from this work would be developed for use by the UK’s Defence Medical Services and other organisations who deliver trauma care in challenging environments. These approaches should also reduce the burden on later care supplied by both MoD and the NHS.

 Up to £500,000 is available for phase one of this competition. At least another £500,000 will be made available for phase two.

 Full details can be found in the Competition Document at: Competition document: regenerative medicine at the front line

 The competition will be briefed at an innovation network event in Bristol on 1 February 2018 and a webinar on 5 February 2018.

 Proposals must be submitted to the Accelerator submission service online by midday on 11 April 2018
