2nd Annual Pediatric Surgical Innovation Symposium

Lessons from Drugs to Devices: A Pediatric Perspective

The organizers of the 2nd Annual Symposium for Pediatric Surgical Innovation and Competition judges are seeking proposals from inventors in medical institutions, private practices, device companies, and academic researchers who have medical device concepts or ideas for use with pediatric patients.

Proposals should address a significant, yet unmet need within the pediatric population with a device idea that lends itself to commercialization. Following the competition process, two prizes will be given, each for up to $50,000.

Please follow this link http://www.pediatric-surgery-symposium.org/prizes/ to review the submission guidelines and to submit your application online by September 22, 2014 at 17:00 EST.

In honor of the people of Abu Dhabi, whose vision and generosity created the Sheikh Zayed Institute for Pediatric Surgical Innovation, the two available prizes are named the Sheikh Zayed Prize for Pediatric Device Innovation. The awards are sponsored by the Sheikh Zayed Institute for Pediatric Surgical Innovation and the Symposium's prime sponsor to be announced.

The Competition session is sponsored and moderated by the law firm of Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati.
