Dept. of Defense - Reconstructive Transplant Research Program. Due 9/28. $200K Available.
FY22 Reconstructive Transplant Research Program (RTRP)
The RTRP challenges the scientific community to design innovative research that will optimize form, function, appearance, and psychosocial health for catastrophically injured Service Members, Veterans, and American civilians through the development of effective reconstructive transplantation solutions. More specifically, the RTRP seeks vascularized composite allotransplantation (VCA)-focused research. VCA refers to the transplantation of multiple tissues such as muscle, bone, nerve, and skin, as a functional unit (e.g., a hand or face) from a deceased donor to a recipient with a severe injury. The ultimate goal is to return injured Service Members to duty and restore their quality of life.
