A gift to SPARK will further our mission to educate, inspire, and support students and faculty in translating their research discoveries into diagnostics and therapeutics to improve human health.
Support our Program — Make a Gift
The Stanford SPARK program was established ten years ago, with the goal of advancing new biomedical research discoveries into promising new treatments for patients. Since its founding, SPARK has advanced scores of new diagnostics and drugs to the clinic and commercial sectors and educated hundreds of faculty, postdoctoral fellows, and students on the translational process. The majority of the SPARK projects address the neglected areas of child and maternal health, global health, and orphan diseases.
A gift to SPARK will support our mission to educate, inspire, and support students and faculty in translating their research discoveries into diagnostics and therapeutics to improve human health.
Our project simply would have foundered a decade ago were it not for the intellectual and financial support of SPARK.
—Edward Rubenstein, MD PROFESSOR (CLINICAL) OF MEDICINE, EMERITUS
What our researchers have said about SPARK:
SPARK’s recognition and support made me confident that translating scientific findings into cure is feasible.
—Rosa Bacchetta, MD, ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR (RESEARCH) OF PEDIATRICS (STEM CELL TRANSPLANTATION)
The SPARK program encouraged us to take a fundamental discovery in virus biology and translate it into a product that has the potential to drastically improve current gene therapy approaches.
—Jan Carette, PhD, ASSISTANT PROFESSOR OF MICROBIOLOGY AND IMMUNOLOGY
SPARK has enabled us to explore beyond the traditional paradigms and create novel agents that are potential therapeutics.
—Peter Kim, PhD, VIRGINIA AND D. K. LUDWIG PROFESSOR OF BIOCHEMISTRY
