Submitting Target Challenge Ideas

We invite individuals, parents, caregivers and others who have recognized a pediatric need that could potentially be addressed by a new commercial device to share with us their idea. Ideas can be submitted directly by sending an email to:

All ideas submitted to NEPDC will be reviewed, and as funding cycles permit, we will choose from these ideas to create a Target Challenge. In these Target Challenges we will present these issues to our wide network of research and development partners to cultivate and stimulate innovative device solutions that can be commercialized.
