SBIR Award Title

SBIR Phase II: A Perfusable, Revascularized, Cardiac-Derived Patch for the Treatment of Heart Disease

SBIR Award Abstract

This Small Business Innovations Research Phase (SBIR) II project is to support the continued development of using proprietary perfusion decellularization technology to create a fully revascularized cardiac patch for the treatment of ischemic heart disease and congenital heart repair. Current surgical approaches for cardiac reconstruction utilize synthetic materials that do not have the ability to grow and remodel with the patient. Feasibility will be demonstrated by in-vitro and in-vivo characterization to create a perfus... more

Description

Miromatrix Medical is dedicated to the development of transplantable organs and tissues. This is based on our proprietary perfusion decellularization technology where whole organs are rapidly decellularized while retaining the original architecture of the extracellular matrix and vasculature intact. The goal of this project, is to further develop Miromatrix' perfusion decellularization technology to create a perfusable, fully revascularized cardiac patch that is capable of providing mechanical support and maintaining physiological blood pressures for the treatment of ischemic heart disease and congenital heart repair. Individuals working on this project will be involved and exposed to multiple areas including: basic research, tissue engineering, preclinical studies, cleanroom environments, quality system and manufacturing.

Desired Knowledge

Miromatrix seeks an individual with at least a BS degree in one of the Sciences or Engineering disciplines such as Tissue or Biomedical Engineering. The successful candidate will be highly proficient in cell biology and cell culture. Excellent organizational, verbal, written, and interpersonal skills are essential, as well as enthusiasm for a collaborative work culture.Preference will be given to those with prior tissue engineering experience and a background in regenerative medicine. Additional experience in the characterization of cardiomyocytes, cardiac function, stem cells, extracellular matrix, and/or endothelial cell culture are definite pluses.
