Title: Philadelphia-Pittsburgh Pediatric Medical Device Consortium
Description: The PPDC will serve as a national resource for pediatric device development. The consortium will provide a platform of experienced regulatory, business planning, and device development services to help foster and guide the advancement of medical devices for pediatric patients. The consortium will provide expert advising and support services to innovators of pediatric medical devices and this work will focus on the total product life cycle for pediatric medical devices and not just getting the device to market. We intend to use the majority of funding received through this grant to encourage innovation, mentor projects, advise on potential funding resources, facilitate the connection of innovators with physicians and business planners, and provide advice to inventors on matters such as how to meet regulatory requirements.
