The Medical Device Innovation Consortium (MDIC) will serve as a coordinator for the new Pathology Innovation Collaborative Community (PICC), a new project to unlock the potential of digital pathology.
The community will strive to meet the following goals:
- Unlock the potential of digital pathology through regulatory science
- Train and educate others in an interdisciplinary approach that focuses on precompetitive regulatory science
- Create an environment that encourages stakeholders to move the pathology field forward
Ultimately, the PICC project hopes to identify and develop regulatory science tools that provide insight into regulatory pathways and streamline innovations in the field. Additionally, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's Center for Devices and Radiological Health will participate in the community.
