Calling all medical device innovators! This year’s symposium will host the National Capital Consortium for Pediatric Device Innovation (NCC-PDI) competition.
Up to six innovations will be awarded up to $50,000 each during the “Make Your Medical Device Pitch for Kids!” competition.
The FDA-funded consortium, led by the Sheikh Zayed Institute for Pediatric Surgical Innovation and A. James Clark School of Engineering at the University of Maryland, invites proposals from innovators – researchers, entrepreneurs, and clinicians – with a pediatric medical device concept that lends itself to commercialization. In addition to prize money, winners will receive consultation services from NCC-PDI.
