Stimulating Peripheral Activity to Relieve Conditions (SPARC): Pre-clinical Development of Existing Market-approved Devices to Support New Market Indications (U18)
This NIH Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is part of the Stimulating Peripheral Activity to Relieve Conditions (SPARC) Common Fund program. The purpose of this FOA is to invite applications from investigators proposing to conduct pre-clinical testing of existing neuromodulation devices, from SPARCs industry partners, in support of new market indications. Partnering companies (Device Portal) have agreed to provide neuromodulation technology to investigators supported by the SPARC program. Pre-clinical developments supported by this FOA are expected to generate the necessary safety and efficacy evidence to enable an Investigational Device Exemption (IDE) submission for a future pilot clinical study.
