Feinberg Lab is awarded a grant from the DARPA BETR project involving “smart” wound healing

The Feinberg Lab is awarded a grant from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency’s (DARPA) Bioelectronics for Tissue Regeneration (BETR) project for the repair of volumetric muscle loss. The Feinberg lab will work in collaboration with labs from Carnegie Mellon University, University of Pittsburgh, Northwestern University, the University of Vermont, the University of Wisconsin and Walter Reed National Military Medical Center to generate the Regenerative Electronics Platform through Advanced Intelligent Regulation (REPAIR) patch, designed to help regrow fully functional muscle tissue.
