NEPDC Target Challenge!


Cassie Brugger of the New England Pediatric Device Consortium joins Justin Starbird to discuss the upcoming Target Challenge! 

The New England Pediatric Device Consortium (NEPDC) is a non-profit foundation supported by the FDA’s Office of Orphan Products Development (OOPD) to promote commercialization of safe and effective technologies for pediatric clinical care. NEPDC accelerates commercialization by connecting innovators with an extensive network of clinicians, researchers, technologists, and business development specialists located at institutions throughout New England. Through their Seed Award program, NEPDC evaluates product concepts across the commercialization spectrum, from ideas to near-to-market devices, and provides rapid and targeted assistance to innovators seeking to address the needs of children suffering from disease or disabilities.

NEPDC is a multidisciplinary, multi-institutional, collaborative consortium that provides infrastructure, expert consultation, and execution of technology translation and commercialization to innovators of pediatric technologies.

Specifically, the NEPDC offers expertise to help develop, validate, and commercially launch pediatric medical devices using proven industry, regulatory, and business development methods.
