September 26, 2011 | 8:30am-4:30pm

On September 26, 2011, the University of Virginia will co-sponsor a U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) workshop on medical device innovation, regulation, device education and translational research on September 26. The workshop is part of the FDA’s Medical Technology Innovation Partnerships (MD-TIP) Project, now in its second year.

The central idea is to enhance the U.S. regulatory process through proactive collaboration with U.S. research universities and emerging entrepreneurs. The clinical focus of the Sept 26 workshop is emerging technologies in personalized cancer diagnostics and cardiovascular device development. Afternoon breakout sessions will cover the regulatory process from first communication through clinical study design. The day will conclude with a discussion of a National Medical Device Development Curriculum.

Fifteen staff members from the FDA’s Center for Device and Radiological Health (CDRH), including division directors, inspectors and network leaders, will be on hand to collaborate with researchers, entrepreneurs, technology transfer offices and students.

This event is free of charge. To attend, contact Angel Thompson at
