Speaking Engagement

This joint symposium between PBSS and the Stanford SPARK translational research program will review how industry and academia can work together to successfully translate academic research into commercial opportunities and will present examples of current and past SPARK projects. 

Academics often make promising discoveries that could lead to novel therapeutics, but lack the expertise to advance their science to a stage here commercial partners would be interested. The Stanford SPARK program is a collaboration between academic scientists and individuals from the local biopharmaceutical community who are willing to share their knowledge and expertise. SPARK is now in its twelfth year and nearly 50% of projects completing the program have been transferred to commercial partners. An additional 10% have entered investigator-initiated clinical trials.
