FDA Workshop on Medical Devices

On October 26, 2010, the FDA is hosting a workshop on medical devices for mid-Atlantic universities at its White Oak Campus in Silver Spring, MD. Faculty and researchers engaged in innovative medical device research and administrators are encouraged to attend. There is no fee to attend this workshop.

The morning session of the workshop, including the working lunch, will include informational presentations on the FDA, collaborative research mechanisms and technology transfer at the FDA.

The afternoon session of the workshop includes break-out sessions with in-depth discussion of FDA processes for both researchers and administrators and discussions of specific critical research areas of interest where medical device innovation is encouraged.

A session on technology transfer of medical devices is being planned for the workshop and Johns Hopkins Technology Transfer (JHTT) is participating in this session.
Detailed information on the agenda and link for registration will be available shortly at the FDA website.

Please contact Leigh Penfield at for any questions.

Two-day Error Correction Window Eliminated

NIH, AHRQ, and NIOSH have eliminated the Error Correction Window that allows principal investigators an opportunity after the deadline to correct missing or incorrect aspects of their applications for due dates on or after January 25, 2011. Eliminating the error correction window will ensure consistent and fair deadlines for all applicants and better align these agencies' application submission processes with the submission processes of other federal agencies.
