We Are Proud to Announce Our Annual Pediatric Medical Device Grant
APPLICATIONS ACCEPTED UNTIL MONDAY, MAY 2, 2022
Pediatric patients have long been an underserved population in the technology space with many having to deal with ill-fitted medical devices and a lack of access to effective diagnostic or therapeutic devices. CTIP aims to address these unmet needs.
Introducing the Catalyzing Pediatric Innovation (CPI) Grant, CTIP's pediatric medical device competition to assist the development of medical device projects for children. We invite proposals addressing the development of novel devices and technologies for pediatric patients.
