Who We Are


Bahram Parvinian, founder and principal consultant at Lighthouse Regulatory Consulting Group, served at the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the Office of Device Evaluation (ODE) from 2006 to 2019.  He started as lead reviewer of surgical implants (2006-2008) and respiratory and anesthesia devices (2008-2011).  In 2011, he shifted his dedication and focused primarily on the review of safety-critical life-sustaining/supporting devices in ODE, taking on the most challenging submission types, 510(k) with clinical data, clinical trial applications (IDE), de novos, original premarket approval (PMA) applications; his reviews included closed-loop automated drug-delivery systems.  In his capacity as lead reviewer and senior regulatory expert of life-sustaining/life-supporting medical devices, he reviewed and made regulatory recommendations for over 200 510(k) notifications, 20 original IDEs, five original de novo applications, and three original PMA devices, the latter  involved advanced automated drug-delivery and combination products.  In 2014, he founded the FDA-CDRH physiological closed-loop controlled (automated) devices working group aimed at addressing regulatory and technical challenges facing digital health technologies (e.g., smart algorithms, indices, physiological sensors, infusion pumps) to be ultimately used towards innovative automated critical care systems.  As leader of the working group, and FDA subject matter expert, he has published articles, co-authored international consensus standards, and drafted FDA guidance documents related to intelligent sensors,  novel monitoring systems, and automated drug-delivery devices, intended to promote innovation in how care is delivered to patients in surgical and critical care settings.  Bahram holds a B.S. in biological engineering from University of Maryland College Park and M.S. in biomedical engineering from Johns Hopkins University with a focus in mathematical modeling of physiological systems.  He holds a Ph.D. in mechanical engineering with a focus on validation and reliability assessment of mathematical models used for design and evaluation of clinical-decision support and automated critical care medical devices.  For a list of regulatory and scientific publications, please click here.
