Megan Moynahan is the Executive Director of the Institute for Functional Restoration (IFR), a non-profit organization based at Case Western Reserve University that has the mission to restore function to people with spinal cord injury by building a sustainable commercial enterprise for neuroprosthetics.

The IFR is currently shepherding a multi-function neuroprosthetic system through the regulatory and commercialization stages, with support from both philanthropy and traditional grants. Prior to this, Megan enjoyed a 17-year career at the US Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) Center for Devices and Radiological Health, where she served as its Associate Director for Technology and Innovation, leading a variety of projects including directing the White House sponsored Entrepreneurs-in-Residence program at FDA, and the Innovation Pathway program designed to streamline the regulatory process for innovative medical devices.
