Request for Information (RFI): B.R.A.I.N. Initiative Public/Private Partnership to Accelerate Clinical Access to Next-Generation Stimulating/Recording Devices

The purpose of this time-sensitive RFI, issued by the Institutes of the NIH BRAIN Initiative (, is to seek input from interested academic/clinical researchers, regulatory and other government agencies, and potential industry partners to identify key barriers and potential opportunities to grant earlier broad access to significant risk recording and/or stimulating medical devices for clinical research. As the intent is to address the unique manufacturing and regulatory burden for SR implantable medical devices, the scope of the RFI is limited to invasive technologies that can stimulate and/or record from the brain, and for which first IDEs have already been obtained or could be obtained in the very near term.
