The New Hampshire Center for Multiscale Modeling and Manufacturing of Biomaterials (NH BioMade) has released a request for proposals for the 2022 Research Seed Funding Opportunity, giving scientists at New Hampshire colleges and universities the chance to apply for grants for research projects, collaborations with industry, the use of laboratory instruments to advance knowledge of the design and manufacture of biomaterials, and curriculum and training enhancements. NH BioMade seeks to advance the design and manufacture of biomaterials used in medical applications such as orthopedic implants, trauma fixation hardware, scaffolding for tissue engineering, and biomedical sensors, and to address industry and clinical needs.

The NH BioMade Research Seed Funding Opportunity provides up to $50,000 in direct costs to faculty and research associates at New Hampshire universities and colleges to conduct pilot projects or collaborations with industry. Up to $5,000 is available for the use of equipment at the University of New Hampshire Instrumentation Center.
