Wichita State University's National Institute for Aviation Research has been awarded a $1.4 million grant from the U.S. Department of Defense to fund a project involving the National Center of Innovation for Biomaterials in Orthopaedic Research (CIBOR).

CIBOR has received previous start-up funding grants from the Kansas Bioscience Authority and the Knight Foundation, and is working on projects for external clients, but this is the organization's first grant for a government project.

The funded CIBOR project is focused on the development of a fast-setting composite stabilization device for battlefield use.
