Detailed summary of Request for Project Propsals The Medical Technology Enterprise Consortium (MTEC) is excited to announce a Request for Project Proposals (RPP) focused on providing innovative solutions to a critical problem in muscle denervation. The overarching goal of this program is to provide biomanufacturing or advanced development for an emerging area of medical technology and innovation that supports standard procedures toward a prototype aimed to maintain, re-establish or regenerate myoneural connections. Technology Focus Areas Applications must address one or more of the following focus areas in nerve regeneration or end-organ health. Specifically, MTEC seeks prototype development and/or biomanufacturing of a device, biologic, or combination prototype that supports: 1. Maintenance of the post-synaptic junction in denervated muscle. 2. Re-establish myoneural connections in the periphery. 3. Co-regeneration of nerve and muscle. The current effort aims to promote highly innovative, groundbreaking research; high-impact research with near-term clinical relevance; multidisciplinary, synergistic research; and translational studies to support the fluid transfer of knowledge from basic principles to clinical solutions. Purely in vitro efforts will not be considered. Proposed projects must be based on logical reasoning and sound scientific rationale that spread biomanufacturing and prototype development. Please note that awards are not to be exploratory in nature and require a foundation of preliminary data. Research involving animal or human subjects is allowed. See the Attachment for additional details regarding this Request for Project Propsals (RPP) Other Information The MTEC mission is to assist the U.S. Army Medical Research and Materiel Command (USAMRMC) by providing cutting-edge technologies and effective materiel life cycle management to transition medical solutions to industry that protect, treat, and optimize Warfighters health and performance across the full spectrum of military operations. MTEC is a biomedical technology consortium collaborating with multiple government agencies under a 10-year renewable Other Transaction Agreement (OTA), Agreement No. W81XWH-15-9-0001, with the U.S. Army Medical Research Acquisition Activity (USAMRAA). MTEC is currently recruiting a broad and diverse membership that includes representatives from large businesses, small businesses, "nontraditional" government contractors, academic research institutions and not-for-profit organizations. White papers are due no later than March 19, 2018 at noon ET. This RPP is posted to the MTEC website (www.mtec-sc.org) and a notice will be posted to FedBizOpps (www.fbo.gov) to notify interested parties. MTEC membership is required for the submission of a white paper in response to this MTEC RPP. To join MTEC, please visit http://mtec-sc.org/how-to-join/ For inquiries regarding this pre-announcement, please direct your correspondence to the following contacts: • Technical questions - Dr. Lauren Palestrini, MTEC Director of Research, lauren.palestrini@officer.mtec-sc.org • Administrative questions - Ms. Kathy Zolman, MTEC Program Manager, kathy.zolman@ati.org • Membership questions - Ms. Stacey Lindbergh, MTEC Executive Director, execdirect@mtec-sc.org For more information regarding this RPP, please visit the MTEC website (a link is included in the attachment incorporated into this FedBizOpps posting).
