Creating Biomedical Technologies to Improve Health

Developing Medical Devices to Treat Pain


This webinar will introduce the audience to several funding opportunity announcements (FOAs), all seeking to develop medical devices to treat pain.  These FOAs support different degrees of technological maturity.  All focus on approaches that target the nervous system to provide therapeutic, rehabilitative, or diagnostic capability.  

The Developing Medical Devices webinar is being offered on three different dates. Material presented during the webinar will be posted on this page after the first webinar is concluded.  There will be time for audience questions. Webinar presenters are:

  • Michael Wolfson, Ph.D., NIBIB
  • Kari Ashmont, Ph.D., NINDS
  • Gene Civillico, Ph.D., OSC/Common Fund

Potential attendees are encouraged to read the available notices and announcements below prior to the webinar. 

All times are eastern standard time. The dates of this webinar are:
