Who We Are


The Consortium for Technology & Innovation in Pediatrics (CTIP) is a pediatric medical device accelerator based at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago and Children's Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA). Established in 2011, CTIP has been funded by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration Pediatric Device Consortia (PDC) grant program in 2013, 2018, and 2023.

CTIP promotes the development and commercialization of pediatric medical devices by simultaneously engaging and coordinating clinicians, engineers, regulators, hospital administrators, industry, patients, and the business community to guide and support medical device development for children.

CTIP has established a robust network of children’s hospitals, academic institutions, accelerators, incubators, and ecosystem partners to support the commercialization of pediatric medical devices. Over the past ten years, CTIP’s Network has steadily grown from local to national membership, with 25 institutions across 8 states participating in the 2023-2028 cycle.
