ASAIO Pediatric Day Special Session
Getting A Pediatric Idea Off The Ground

ASAIO will host the second “Pediatric Device Consortia Consulting Forum” at the 63rd ASAIO Annual Conference in Chicago June 21 – 24, 2017.  This session is designed to allow selected entrepreneurs to present novel ideas on how to get a pediatric device into the market place before a panel of members from the FDA’s Pediatric Device Consortia (PDC).  FDA funds the PDC to provide expert support services to innovators of pediatric devices.  These services include business and regulatory consulting, as well as device testing capabilities.  Some specific areas of expertise provided by the Consortia include intellectual property advice; prototyping; engineering; laboratory and animal testing; grant-writing; and clinical trial design.

If you have novel ideas on how to get a pediatric device into the market place and would like to be considered to present and receive feedback on your device from members of the Forum, please submit a Proposal of less than two pages for review.    Proposals from all levels of development and those with breakthrough pathways to market will be considered.  The Proposal should include a brief device description, intended use, stage of development, market share, and regulatory pathway.  The panel will provide critical feedback to the presenters with the goal of giving constructive input for the entrepreneurs and for Pediatric Day attendees.

Two proposals will be chosen for presentation at the Forum.  The selected proposals will have their ASAIO Conference Registration Fee waived and will also receive a cash prize.  All Proposals will be reviewed by a diverse committee comprised of a pediatric cardiothoracic surgeon, pediatric cardiologist, regulatory expert, pediatric biomedical engineer/perfusionist, and a business expert.

The Deadline for Receipt of Proposals is March 1, 2017.  Proposals should be submitted to ASAIO Headquarters at info@asaio.com with a subject line of “Proposal for Pediatric Device Consortia Consulting Forum”.
