Significant breakthroughs in cell biology, biofabrication, and materials science in the last decade have laid the foundation for the large-scale manufacturing and commercialization of engineered tissues and tissue-related technologies, including tissues- and organs-on-chip.
Forward-thinking manufacturers and researchers are connecting with one another to determine how these emerging technologies can benefit existing industries and grow new ones.
The Massachusetts Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MassMEP) is uniquely positioned to help small- and medium-sized manufacturers, research institutions, and universities leverage biofabrication technologies to contribute to the success of their respective enterprises. As part of the MEP National Network, the go-to experts for advancing U.S. manufacturing, and with staff onsite at the Advanced Regenerative Manufacturing Institute (ARMI), the national institute for the commercialization of engineered tissues and tissue-related technologies, MassMEP connects manufacturers, research institutions, and universities with the resources they need to begin to realize the potential of these advanced biofabrication technologies.
This important service facilitates the development of nascent concepts into scalable products that address critical public health needs.

Massachusetts Manufacturing Extension Partnership
MassMEP is a collaborative center comprised of government, business, and academic partners dedicated to helping manufacturers meet the challenges of competing in an ever-changing economy. Focused on three core areas of expertise designed to help deliver positive, measurable, and sustainable growth, MassMEP provides manufacturers with the resources they need to succeed in today’s advanced manufacturing environment by helping them identify, analyze, and overcome strategic, operational, and workforce challenges.
Advanced Regenerative Manufacturing Institute
ARMI brings together engineering, life science, computer science, materials science, manufacturing, and workforce development experts to develop an ecosystem of companies/institutes focused on developing tissue-engineering and regenerative medicine (TERM) and related therapies and technologies in order to realize its mission of making practical the large-scale manufacturing of engineered tissues and tissue-related technologies through innovations in five main areas: cell selection, culture, and scale-up; biomaterial selection and scale-up; tissue process automation and monitoring; tissue maturing technologies; and tissue preservation and transport.
