A third RFA for pediatric device commercialization announced

The Michigan Pediatric Device Consortium (M-PED) is pleased to announce its Request for Applications for gap funding for pediatric medical devices, including apps. M-PED is seeking proposals from inventors in medical institutions, private practices, the business community, and academic research who have medical device concepts for use with pediatric patients. Proposals should address an unmet need within the pediatric population with a device idea that lends itself to commercialization. Awards of $20-50,000 may be granted to each of 3-6 projects. Projects that are past the prototype stage are encouraged to apply. 

The application process has two stages. A 2-page written pre-proposal is due on December 8. Selected applicants will be invited by December 23 to submit a full 6-8 page proposal due January 9, 2015. Details are contained in the document attached to this post on our message board (see http://www.pediatricdeviceconsortium.org/mypdc).
