University of Maryland Center of Excellence in Regulatory Science and Innovation (UM-CERSI) Innovation Award

Description 

Associate Professor Benjamin Shapiro (BioE/ISR) an inaugural University of Maryland Center of Excellence in Regulatory Science and Innovation (UM-CERSI) Innovation Awards. These one-year grants support collaborative research projects fostering regulatory science development in medications and/or medical devices. Shapiro received the award for "FDA Safety and Performance Assessment of Emerging Autonomous Neonatal Ventilators by State-of-the-Art Robust Analysis Methods." The project will apply and develop use-control verification techniques, specifically robust analysis, to initiate best safety practices in autonomous ventilators for preterm neonatal patients.
