The Midwest Biomedical Accelerator Consortium, an NIH Research Evaluation and Commercialization Hub, a partnership led by the NIH and the University of Missouri is requesting proposal for proof of concept milestone-driven funding and support for translational research projects. Selected projects are provided with resources and the opportunity to work with experts to pressure-test the commercial viability of their ideas using universal business criteria as well as the unique requirements of biomedical product commercialization.

The National Science Foundation’s Designing Materials to Revolutionize and Engineer our Future program supports activities that significantly accelerate materials discovery and development by building the fundamental knowledge base needed to advance the design and development of materials with desirable properties or functionality.
