New England Pediatric Device Consortium (NEPDC)
The New England Pediatric Device Consortium (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. We are proud to be a partner organization with NEPDC.
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 its 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 believes that no hurdle is too high for a product that can positively impact the life of a child.
