In December, UNH was tapped to play a leading role in a major national public-private institute that aims to launch an industry, headquartered in New Hampshire, that will develop bioengineered human tissues and organs for transplantation. Funded by $80 million from the U.S. Department of Defense combined with more than $214 million from 80 industry, education and nonprofit partners, the Advanced Regenerative Manufacturing Institute (ARMI) is led by Manchester-based DEKA Research & Development. UNH will lead the national education and workforce development activities for ARMI, drawing on its growing life sciences strength as well as its leadership in creating powerful partnerships to drive economic development in the state.
