Focused on the Medical Device Industry

The MDIC is the only public-private partnership (PPP) focused exclusively on the strategic needs of the medical device industry. The MDIC is designed to create a collaborative environment where the industry, non-profit organizations, and government can work together to advance pre-competitive medical device research so that the medical device community can keep pace with the needs of patients in the United States in a more timely manner.

Focused on Regulatory Science

Regulatory science refers to the development and evaluation of new tools, methods, standards and applied science that support a better understanding and improved evaluation of product safety, quality, effectiveness, and manufacturing throughout the product life cycle.

Focused on Improving Health

The MDIC has been formed to add value at the intersecting needs of the medical device industry, the FDA, and the related organizations that are together responsible for a vibrant medical device industry that serves the public health needs of the U.S.
