A New Hampshire-based coalition including NEC members University of New Hampshire and Dartmouth-Hitchcock recently received a $80 million award from the Department of Defense to establish the Advanced Regenerative Manufacturing Institute (ARMI), Inc.

The coalition is tasked with developing and bio-manufacturing tissues and organs for transplant patients to improve the standardization of the process. ARMI is as a part of the Obama administration’s initiative Manufacturing USA, which creates public-private partnerships to encourage manufacturing innovation and to train American workers for jobs in the advanced manufacturing sector. The Department of Defense granted the award in hope that the institute will benefit injured U.S. service members.

“UNH has vibrant and extensive life sciences research, education and workforce development programs, with particular strengths in cellular biology, biomedical sciences and bioengineering. We are honored by this recognition from the Department of Defense for our leadership in STEM education and workforce development,” said UNH President Mark Huddleston.
