The Atlantic Pediatric Device Consortium (APDC) is pleased to announce its 4th annual Pediatric Device Innovation Competition.  This seed grant competition is an opportunity for the scientific and business community including entrepreneurs, clinicians, scientists, businesses, academic researchers and medical and engineering graduate and undergraduate students, to develop and commercialize a pediatric medical device.

The APDC is an FDA funded consortium based out of Georgia Tech (PI: David Ku), Emory University (co-PIs: Wilbur Lam, Kevin Maher), Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, and Virginia Commonwealth University (co-PI: Barbara Boyan) that provides a national platform to translate medical device ideas from concept to commercialization.  APDC’S mission is to enhance the lives of children through the development of novel pediatric medical devices, which are both save and effective.  The consortium provides an environment of creativity, where ideas are reviewed, tested, and developed.  

The application for seed grant funding begins with a written proposal, submitted to the APDC Innovation Competition Review Committee. Proposals are due on January 5, 2015, and selected investigators will be notified by January 30, 2015, of their selection for participation in the next round of the competition.

The second round is an opportunity for selected investigators to make a 5 minute oral presentation of their proposed idea/concept, to the review committee, an audience of peers, and the engineering and medical community in attendance. The investigators will be given advice on market size, product development, and regulatory submissions.  Proposal presentations will be held on the Georgia Tech campus on February 21, 2015.
