U.Va. Innovation invites you to attend the May installment of our Innovation Roundtable series, Innovation Initiatives at the FDA. Please join us for a conversation with:
Deputy Division Director (Science and Policy)
Center for Devices and Radiological Health
Discover how the U.S. Food and Drug Administration is pushing new innovative efforts from within and how it is showcasing new innovation initiatives and connections. Kwame Ulmer started as a Biomedical Engineer with the FDA, then as a branch chief, and he is now the deputy director (science and policy). Prior to joining the FDA, Ulmer worked as an engineer at the Naval Sea Systems Command.
He is part of the FDA Innovation Pathway Project. Since November 2011, the team has been working to shorten the overall time it takes for the development, assessment, and review of breakthrough medical devices.
Also, come out to experience "Bump-It", a smartphone application developed by a U.Va. student team that allows users to manage playlists by adding or stopping certain songs. "Bump-It" received an honorable mention at the 2011 U.Va. Entrepreneurship Cup.
TIME: 5 p.m. - 7 p.m.
Food and refreshments provided. The event will be held at CitySpace (100 5th St. NE) on the Downtown Mall, above the Market St. Garage.
