The mission of Georgia Tech Pediatric Technologies (GTPT) is to accelerate development of new medical technologies for pediatric patients. We connect researchers—including engineers, data analysts, scientists, and others—with frontline pediatric clinicians to create new technologies for unmet healthcare needs for children, who oftentimes do not have access to the full spectrum of available medical technologies.
GTPT is dedicated to funding research through unique collaborative research initiatives. We fund development activities that organizations like the National Institutes of Health do not. We also fund specific activities, like preclinical studies, for technologies with high potential for commercialization and clinical utility.
Private support is critical to ensuring these innovations reach the children that need them.
From the clinical bedside to the home environment, to implantable devices and to surgical robots, the way we practice and provide pediatric healthcare is changing. New devices are being developed for individualized care and digital and continuous monitoring. Tools are being created that can provide patient education, physician protocols, new at-home monitoring systems, connectors to reduce contamination or clotting, and custom components through 3D printing to name a few.
Large Charitable Organizations – Why Contribute to Georgia Tech Pediatric Technologies?
Medtech innovation is difficult and expensive. Novel technologies driven by unmet needs as stated by clinicians themselves need engineering expertise, clinical expertise, and high levels of development acumen to give them the greatest opportunity to improve outcomes and lives.
But these technologies require investment in the people, tools, and other resources to complete the long road from the unmet clinical need at the bedside or lab to patient care.
If you are a charitable foundation or organization with a mission to, or strong interest in, improving children’s healthcare through new medical technologies based on unmet clinical needs for children at any scale, contact Director of Corporate Engagement, Caroline Wood, to start the conversation.

We know there are endless opportunities to make charitable gifts to organizations with noble missions. We also know many individuals have been touched by children with medical conditions whose lives have been, or can be, dramatically improved by new medical technologies.
But those technologies require investment in the people, tools, and other resources to complete the rigorous road from the lab to the patient including clinical trials which can be very, very costly.
Your gift to Georgia Tech Pediatric Technologies marries the best in engineering and medical technology development expertise for pediatric patients with unmet clinical needs that originate directly from the patients’ bedsides and the clinicians who care for those patients. Gifts can be directed to conduct basic research or feasibility studies or accelerate the timeline to patient care and broader scale commercialization in general or for specific technologies.
Please consider supporting these developing initiatives for children in Georgia and around the world by directing your gift to Georgia Tech Pediatric Technologies.
