A child receives medical care at the hospitalCTSI is excited to announce that its Pediatric Device Development Award Program is now continuously accepting applications throughout the year.

The program, which was formerly the Pediatric Medical Device Translational Grant Program, supports the development of pediatric medical devices to ultimately improve pediatric outcomes and quality of life. Program administrators work with funded investigators to provide work strategy guidance, frequent feedback, and access to comprehensive internal and external services.

CTSI's Office of Discovery and Translation (ODAT) and the Pediatric Device Innovation Consortium (PDIC) provide funding, expert guidance, and project management support for this program. 

"A rolling application process ensures that our program is an ongoing source of potential funding and development support for project candidates in this area, and better meets the needs of faculty who submit applications to this program -- who are primarily pediatric clinicians often collaborating with industry partners," said Program Manager Jodi Fenlon Rebuffoni. 

The Pediatric Device Development Award Program is one of five CTSI ODAT funding programs, and its third program to offer a rolling application process
