CLEMSON — Clemson University has been awarded $11 million to expand a bioengineering center that helps mentor junior faculty members as they research how lab-grown tissue can treat some of the world’s most debilitating diseases, ranging from heart disease to spinal cord injuries.

Scientists expect the program will encourage an upward spiral that leads to more research dollars and helps boost the state’s growing medical-technology industry. Much of the center’s research will be done at the cutting-edge Patewood campus in Greenville.

The money comes from a National Institutes of Health (NIH) program that supports the Centers of Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE) nationwide. The Clemson one is the South Carolina Bioengineering Center of Regeneration and Formation of Tissues (SC BioCRAFT).

Clemson University President James Clements made the announcement Wednesday, saying the grant is the largest from the NIH in the university’s history and brings the total NIH funding for the center to $20.3 million.
