M-PED provided connections to resources in regulatory investigation and intellectual property (including patent searches) that were critical to the development of the Charpie Pediatric Intubation System. The Gap Funding Award is helping me turn the conceptual design into a functional prototype in a collaboration with a local medical device firm.
The goal of the Pediatric Device Consortia (PDC) Gap Funding Initiatives is to
provide gap funding to accelerate technology advancement and increase
the likelihood of receiving future rounds of funding, ranging from SBIRs
to larger NIH grants and/or private or venture capital investment.
Companies, individual inventors, clinicians, researchers and students are all encouraged to apply. You do not have to reside in the same state, or be affiliated with the academic or clinical centers, where the PDC is located.
Opportunities for Gap Funding are available from the following PDCs on an annual or semi-annual basis:
