ARMI’s BioFabUSA, sponsored by the Department of Defense, focuses on biomanufacturing and looks to bridge the gap between early scientific research and later-stage product development by advancing critical technologies to enable large-scale biological manufacturing efforts. The technical scope for BioFabUSA work includes innovations across five focus areas: (1) Cell Selection, Culture and Scale-up, (2) Biomaterial Selection and Scale-up; (3) Tissue Process Automation and Monitoring; (4) Tissue Maturing Technologies and (5) Tissue Preservation and Transport. BioFabUSA’s Spring 2019 Project Calls are divided into two areas: Technology and the Tissue Foundry, with a full proposal deadline of August 20, 2019. For more information on membership, please visit
