Funding - Innovation Accelerator Pilot Program

SPARK - Therapeutics

Request For Proposals

In keeping with its core mission, Spectrum Program offers grants for accelerating clinical and translational research in biomedical and health-related areas. The Pilot Grant Program has two major goals:

  • To stimulate innovative clinical and translational research and
  • To encourage collaborative, transdisciplinary work.


The primary expectation is that these early-stage translational projects will lead to additional research, external support, information dissemination and most important, will develop into longer-term, comprehensive projects. We encourage transdisciplinary collaborations, but this is not a requirement for funding.
