Google staffers take a meeting with FDA medical device chief Dr. Jeffrey Shuren and other agency officials, but the details are sparse.

Is Google working on a medical device?

FDA medtech officials met last month with members of Google's (NSDQ:GOOG) clandestine "X" research team, raising speculations about a foray into medical devices for the group that was behind Google Glass and the company's self-driving car.

A quartet of Google employees met on December 18 with FDA medical device chief Dr. Jeffrey Shuren and a bevy of other agency officials, according to the FDA's public calendar, which described the appointment as a "meet and greet."
