Regulatory & Reimbursement Core

Our Regulatory Core provides extensive regulatory, reimbursement, and quality assurance capabilities. On-site expertise is provided by PDC Clinical-Regulatory Engineer Alex Balus, who assists innovators with FDA inquiries and submissions and provides up-to-date advising on FDA guidances and initiatives, such as the use of real-world evidence in FDA regulatory filings. In addition, the PDC works closely with the UCSF-Stanford Center of Excellence in Regulatory Science and Innovation (CERSI) to provide education opportunities for pediatric device innovators.
