Team Mission

To define data collection, submission and analysis standards for research involving  medical devices.


This project is developing collection (CDASH), submission (SDTM) and analysis (ADaM) standards with associated controlled terminology to support electronic submission of PMAs, 510(k)s and Biologics License Applications (BLAs).  It also supports implementation of CDISC standards for drug/device combination products, and the use of devices in non-device studies (e.g., Therapeutic Area studies).


  • Regulatory Authorities
  • Standards Development Organizations
  • Pharmaceutical Sponsors
  • Medical Devices, Diagnostics companies
  • Contract Research Organizations, Technology Vendors & Consultants
  • Other organizations conducting or supporting device-related research (e.g., universities)


SDTM, CDASH, ADaM, NCI EVS, Therapeutic Area Teams, FDA (CDRH)
