National Institutes of Health award Clemson $9.3 million for tissue regeneration center
Date:10/15/2009

CLEMSON, S.C. Clemson University has received a $9.3 million, five-year National Institutes of Health (NIH) grant to establish a Center of Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE) for Tissue Regeneration. Faculty from the Medical University of South Carolina and the University of South Carolina also will collaborate, providing expertise in medicine and developmental biology.

The center is funded by the NIH National Center for Research Resources Institutional Development Award program that seeks to broaden the geographic distribution of NIH funding for biomedical and behavioral research. The program aims to increase the number of NIH-funded biomedical researchers in the nation and to strengthen the biomedical research capacity of individual universities. The goal is to create world-class core facilities and to provide funding and mentoring for early career investigators already in place to make them successful, independent NIH-funded investigators.

"This new Clemson COBRE will significantly improve our collaborative efforts in South Carolina to recruit, train and retain researchers with cross-disciplinary skills in the area of regenerative medicine," said Clemson University President James F. Barker. "This recognition from NIH is a great honor for Clemson University and speaks to the rich history and outstanding quality of research from our bioengineering department."

According to U.S. Census Bureau projections, the aging baby boomer population will expand the elderly population 75 percent in the next two decades to over 74 million people, creating a tremendous biomedical need. South Carolina already is home to a growing medical-device cluster.

"End-stage organ failure and tissue loss create health care costs of nearly $400 billion annually in the United States," said Naren Vyavahare, Hunter Endowed Chair, professor of bioengineering and chief architect of the proposal. Vyavahare also will act as principal investigator and the
