Full Summary: No summary paragraph submitted.

The Atlantic Pediatric Device Consortium (APDC) will host its seventh annual Innovation Competition at the Virginia Commonwealth University on September 25, 2017. APDC is seeking proposals from innovators who have medical device concepts or ideas for use with pediatric patients. Proposals should address a significant pediatric problem with device ideas or previously existing projects ready to move towards the commercialization of a viable product.

This year's competition began with written proposals for seed grant funding due July 31, 2017. Finalists will present their proposals 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. There will be five to eight awards ranging from $10,000 to $50,000 for product development.

Competition winners will be announced in October 2017.
