  • Barbara Boyan has been at the forefront of pediatric device development for several years. She was the original Executive Director of APDC at the Georgia Institute of Technology, and now serves as the Dean of the Virginia Commonwealth University’s School of Engineering. In 2013, APDC extended its geographical footprint to Richmond, VA to keep Dr. Boyan as a PI on the FDA grant.

The Atlantic Pediatric Device Consortium provides a national platform to translate ideas through the product development pathway all the way to commercialization.  With funding from the FDA Office of Orphan Products Development, our mission is to enhance the lives of children through the development of novel pediatric medical devices which are both safe and effective.  The Consortium fosters an environment of creativity, where innovative ideas are reviewed, tested, and developed by a multidisciplinary team of experts from the Georgia Institute of Technology Emory University, and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. With its roots firmly established in the Atlanta engineering and medical communities, in 2013 APDC was awarded renewal funding from the FDA and has expanded its geographical footprint along the east coast to include the Virginia Commonwealth University.

What's New

APDC is seeking proposals from innovators who have medical device concepts or ideas for use with pediatric patients.

The National Capital Consortium for Pediatric Device Innovation has launched their 3rd annual Pediatric Device Competition.

Finalist from across the country made presentations and discussed their device ideas with the APDC review committee, an audience of peers, and the engineering and medical community in attendance.

Georgia Tech and Children's Healthcare of Atlanta have developed an iPad app that helps therapists treat children who have feeding disorders.
