Developing a Roadmap for Solutions to Organ Disease and Injury
The Organ Bioengineering and Banking Roadmap Workshop will develop a critical-path roadmap toward solutions to organ disease and injury, encompassing solid organs and other complex tissues.
This workshop builds upon recent activity toward banking and bioengineering complex tissues, including:
• The interagency meeting hosted at the Department of Health and Human Services with New Organ’s coordination
• The new federal grant programs from the Department of Defense focused on organ and tissue banking R&D
• The first global Organ Banking Summit that further mobilized the scientific community around organ banking
• New Organ’s challenge prize in development to help overcome tissue engineering’s “vascularization limit.”
