SPARK's partnerships with academic institutions
Developing a SPARK Program
The SPARK model for translational research has proven to be a successful model which can be replicated at other academic institutions as a cost-effective way to facilitate development of research discoveries into novel therapeutics or diagnostics.
A number of academic institutions have successfully developed their own SPARK programs based upon the SPARK at Stanford model. SPARK at Stanford actively supports our US and international partners in the development of their programs with visits, guest lectures, and more.
Key Aspects Required for SPARK Model Success
- Strong foundation in basic and clinical research
- Local resource of highly-skilled industry advisors
- Seed money to fund drug development projects
