NIH MedTech program aims to accelerate medical devices to treat, diagnose nervous system disorders
The National Institutes of Health has awarded research funding for seven pilot projects developing early stage, yet groundbreaking neuro-technologies. The innovative projects would enable new medical devices to diagnose and treat both acute and chronic disorders, from neuropathic pain to mental illness. The one-year, $100,000 awards are the first for a new program within the NIH Blueprint for Neuroscience Research, called Blueprint MedTech.
Tech incubator centers award initial cycle of funding for device developers
Within one year of launching its incubator hubs, the National Institutes of Health Blueprint MedTech program has issued nine awards in its first competition cycle. The MedTech program seeks to accelerate transformative medical devices to restore brain health, improve healthy aging and treat disorders of the nervous system. The first round of these awards totals $11 million.
