Vascularization is one of the most important and highly challenging issues in the development of soft tissue. It is necessary to supply cells with nutrition within a multilayer tissue, for example in artificial skin.
Our research on artificial skin is driven by an increasing demand for two main applications: for the field of regenerative medicine, victims must be provided with soft tissue implants, as well as soft tissue is necessary after traumatic injuries and tumour treatment. Secondly, to substitute the expensive and ethically disputed pharmaceutical tests on animals by artificial vascularized test beds to simulate the uptake of the pharmaceuticals into the blood.
The multidisciplinary ArtiVasc 3D team - consisting of engineers, physicists, chemists, biologists and physicians - is working on developing standardized processes for scaffold production and to cultivate vascularized skin rapidly and inexpensively. In this way, the project is contributing to improving and accelerating patient treatment in emergencies and to reducing animal testing to an absolute minimum.
Oerlikon Metco is a global partner offering reliable and sustainable solutions for performance-critical applications. Our innovative solutions add value and strengthen the competitive position of our customers.
solutions by current, as well as future, U.S.-based producers of Department of Defense (DoD) systems by assisting with the ongoing identification and implementation of, and transition to, state-of-the-art manufacturing and technology solutions.
We work closely with all DoD organizations, as well as DoD suppliers, to identify opportunities where process improvements will lead to significant cost savings or removal of critical bottlenecks. Our in-house manufacturing experts, along with a vast network of Alliance Partners and Manufacturing Consortium, develop and transition to the shop floor improved manufacturing and machining technologies and methodologies. To date, NCDMM projects have generated more than $500 million in cost savings or avoidance for the DoD and its supply base.
Our Alliance Partners and Manufacturing Consortium are established technological leaders in manufacturing-related fields. These organizations take an active role in identifying, developing, demonstrating, and deploying new solutions in partnership with the NCDMM. To date, we maintain relationships with more than 90 Alliance Partners and over 200 Manufacturing Consortiummembers.
We take great pride in reducing manufacturing and machining costs, enabling more critical hardware and supplies to be available for our troops in defense of our nation. If your organization is interested in partnering with the NCDMM or would like to learn more about our service offerings, please contact us for details.
Since 1998, the Golden West Humanitarian Foundation has addressed critical shortfalls in heavily mine-impacted countries across the globe. Each year we have built on our innovative work from the past, uncovering and addressing the challenges that hinder clearance efforts.
From pioneering a solution to recycle unexploded ordnance in Cambodia to publishing a UXO awareness book for children, we take a comprehensive approach to solving the problem. As we continue to expand our resources and expertise, we are able to bring high impact solutions to an increasing number of communities living in areas contaminated with landmines and unexploded ordnance.
Our mission is to safeguard the lives and livelihoods of men, women and children residing in areas contaminated with landmines and unexploded ordnance, through the development of innovative and practical materials and technologies designed to combat these life threatening munitions.We fulfil this mission guided by the core values of innovation, forethought, partnership, appropriateness, impact and affordability. Our vision is of a world one step closer to peace and prosperity where mankind lives in an environment free of explosive remnants of war.
From Ideas to Action
The Golden West Humanitarian Foundation is a United States based, non-profit charity dedicated to the development of innovative, appropriate technologies to overcome the operational limitations encountered by the humanitarian mine action community.
With an abundance of combined experience in Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD), engineering, training, chemistry, and geo-physics, Golden West personnel are highly qualified to effectively improve the operational efficacy of the organizations working to rid the planet of the deadly Explosive Remnants of War (ERW).
By working collaboratively with governments, the UN, National Mine Action Centers and NGOs, we address the needs of the mine action community and strive to ensure the widest dissemination and use of the innovative systems we develop in order to save lives.
