Los Angeles Business Journal

Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and the University of Southern California have partnered to create a new research center to help develop medical devices for children. The development of pediatric medical devices lags behind the development of adult devices by five to 10 years mainly due to economic, clinical, and regulatory hurdles, as well as a lack of established ways to match pediatric device ideas with qualified individuals, programs and companies, Children’s said.
