In celebration of the Medical Technology Enterprise Consortium’s (MTEC) six-year anniversary, we’re taking a look back at its considerable impact on the lives of our military personnel and veterans. Since 2015, MTEC has supported the U.S. Army Medical Research and Development Command (USAMRDC) by identifying emerging medical technologies and facilitating faster transition from the laboratory to the battlefield, the bedside, and ultimately, the globe.
MTEC is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation comprised of 521 member organizations, including small and large businesses, emerging companies, academia, and nonprofits. To date, MTEC has made 134 awards in support of accelerating medical technologies that prevent and treat injuries to restore the health of those who serve. Projects have focused on early detection of COVID-19, traumatic brain injury, post-traumatic stress disorder, treatment and prevention of combat wound infections, insomnia, HIV countermeasures, burn injury and organ support, hemorrhage control, medical simulation, artificial intelligence, and more.
MTEC is an internationally dispersed biomedical technology consortium collaborating under an Other Transaction Agreement (OTA) with USAMRDC to serve those who serve our nation. ATI builds and leads innovative R&D collaborations, like MTEC, who help the government quickly acquire novel technologies. ATI makes it easier for people and organizations to work together by providing a range of support services, including membership management, best-in-class security practices, single-point contracting and financial management, website and data management, event management, and training.
MTEC seeks to accelerate the delivery of technology and medical solutions that prevent and treat injuries and restore America’s military and veterans to full health. Learn more by visiting mtec-sc.org and by reading past success stories here. MTEC is supported by Advanced Technology International.
