MTF Biologics Administered Grants

As a nonprofit organization, MTF Biologics reinvests to positively affect lives across the globe. We offer research grants to fund novel research in the fields of allograft transplantation and allograft science which have a high likelihood of impact on scientific discipline and/or on patient care.

These grants are intended to provide support for research projects focused on novel uses of allografts or allograft-derived materials for biologic repair and reconstruction with a strong clinical translation component in the following areas: Orthopedics, Spine, Sports Medicine, Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, Aesthetics, Wound Care, Surgical Soft Tissue Repair and Reconstruction, or other novel allograft transplant technologies.

Proposed studies should focus on innovative translational and clinical research in the fields of tissue allograft transplantation and science, novel uses of allografts, combination with other biomaterials to enhance properties, and transformative regenerative medicine technologies relying on allograft tissues and matrices.

MTF Biologics considers both clinical science and basic science proposals for funding in the following grant categories.

A Letter of Intent is required prior to submitting a full grant application. Applicants with approved Letters of Intent will be invited to submit a full grant application. All Letters of Intent and Grant Applications must be submitted via the MTF Biologics Grant Application portal link below.
