MDEpiNet Science and Infrastructure Center


In 2011 Weill Cornell Medical College (WCMC) was designated by the FDA as an MDEpiNet Science and Infrastructure Center, and was initially tasked with the goal of advancing the national application of unique device identifiers (UDI) and the application of UDIs within the context of the International Consortium of Orthopedic Registries (ICOR) and the International Consortium of Cardiovascular Registries (ICCR). The Center’s approach is based on conceptual frameworks that were developed in collaboration with the FDA and manufacturers. There are many focused projects within the initiatives that advance the conceptual framework of the MDEpiNet, including evidence generation, appraisal and synthesis, new international collaborative studies, and translation of the results for regulators.
