Product Development Network

Our network of product development experts assists PDC members with the later stages of the engineering process by walking through the testing and manufacturing stages and identifying potential manufacturers. In addition to this network, the UCSF PDC has a collaboration agreement with medical device incubator TheraNova, providing PDC members with certified processes and facilities for manufacturing of medical equipment.
