One research proposal is based on a medical device technology, the other two research proposals are based on tissue engineering. We are now looking for donators / investors, in order to start the proposed research projects. We will need about 250.000 dollars to start at least one research project.
Of course every interested donator or investor will receive the official research proposals and he/she will be able to talk personally with the researchers and visit their laboratories before making a final funding decision.March 2002: The Biomedical Growth Research Initiative (BGRI) is founded by an international team of people with various forms of short stature syndrome. The BGRI wants to support biomedical growth research projects, so that a safe and effective height increase therapy will be available as soon as possible.
