The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a notice requesting nominations for voting members to serve on the Medical Devices Advisory Committee (MDAC) device panels, which reviews data on the safety and effectiveness of marketed and investigational devices and makes recommendations for their regulation.
The notice, published on Aug. 30, indicates that expertise is needed for the Anesthesiology and Respiratory Therapy Devices Panel of the MDAC, including anesthesiologists, pulmonary medicine specialists, or other experts who have specialized interests in ventilator support, sleep medicine, pharmacology, physiology, or the effects and complications of anesthesia. FDA is also seeking applicants with pediatric expertise in these areas. There is only one vacancy on this panel, and the approximate start date is Dec. 1.
