The Medical Technology Enterprise Consortium (MTEC) is the recent recipient of a community grant from The Allergan Foundation, made in support of optic nerve regeneration research. This grant is an important milestone for MTEC, which received its nonprofit status last year. As the first philanthropic grant MTEC has received, it represents a significant step in MTEC’s vision of teaming philanthropic dollars with government dollars to further accelerate promising medical research. The grant funds will contribute to the development of technologies that can improve – or even restore – lost vision.

On September 27, MTEC Board Member Skip Auch and MTEC Outreach Member Greg Brand attended The Allergan Foundation’s Community Grant Reception in Morristown, New Jersey, where they met with other Allergan Foundation grantees, as well as leadership from the Foundation.
