The FDA joined the Medical Device Innovation Consortium (MDIC) in the first public-private partnership to promote medical device regulatory science. MDIC is an independent, non-profit corporation created by CDRH and LifeScience Alley (LSA), a Minnesota-based biomedical trade association. The goal of the MDIC is to foster collaborations between industry, non-profit organizations and government that lead to efficient and effective advances in both medical device research and the needs of patients.  To read the FDA press release, click here.
