Medical Device Development the Focus of FDA Public Workshop in Juneby sterling1 on Jun 1, 2010 • 1:10 pm No Comments
Thanks to a recent article in The Massachusetts Medical Devices Journal, which is a very fine online site that covers the medical devices industry in Massachusetts and New England, I was alerted to an upcoming FDA public workshop to be held on June 24th in Gaithersburg, Maryland. The theme of the gathering is: Identifying Unmet Public Health Needs and Facilitating Innovation in Medical Device Development.
After seeing the news coverage of this I decided to track down the FDA’s specific announcement about the event. One very compelling feature of this workshop is that the meeting will include the participation of the Council on Medical Device Innovation. That’s a group, established by the FDA’s Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH), that is composed of participants from federal agencies including the National Institutes of Health, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, the Department of Defense, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, and the Department of Veterans Affairs.
Turns out, the FDA is also accepting presentations. When you register, if you want to make an oral presentation, you can submit your topic. Since they anticipate having limited time and space on the 24th, you’re urged to sign up soon if you wish to attend.
Here’s the news article overview of the upcoming event, and here’s the FDA’s information and registration page.
