The Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) Office of Orphan Products Development is announcing the following workshop: FDA Pediatric Medical Devices Workshop. This meeting is intended to focus on challenges in pediatric device development—namely, business planning and funding concerns; and how sponsors can most effectively interact with the FDA. The goal of this meeting is to engage and educate pediatric innovators and device industry sponsors.
This educational meeting will consist of live presentations provided by FDA experts from various Centers and Offices, as well as from outside experts. The interactive meeting will also include a “mock” FDA pre-submission meeting for a “mock” pediatric medical device, to illustrate how such encounters may transpire. In addition, attendees will have an opportunity during lunch to engage with Pediatric Device Consortia Grant Program leaders. The meeting will be recorded for subsequent posting on the FDA Web site.
Date and Time: The meeting will be held on September 24, 2012, from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
Location: FDA White Oak Campus, 10903 New Hampshire Ave., Bldg. 31 Conference Center, the Great Room (rm. 1503), Silver Spring, MD 20993-0002. For participants who cannot attend the live meeting, a recorded Web cast will be made available after the meeting.
