We support our scientists to use their research to solve healthcare challenges.
The process of using original scientific research to create treatments, technologies and diagnostic tools is known as translation. Turning new scientific understanding into a treatment is often difficult, complex, and takes time and investment. Our specialist in-house team helps researchers to take their advances forward and are involved from the very beginning.
They support projects through both expertise and funding with a focus on long-term sustainability. Along with the Crick’s team of industrial scientists, clinicians and entrepreneurs and our Translation Advisory Group, the Translation team connects scientists with industry colleagues, clinicians, drug discovery experts, technology experts and investors who can help to take projects forward.
Crick researchers benefit from advice and input from experts with track records in translation at the earliest stages of their project. By shaping their projects with insights from industry and clinicians, Crick scientists benefit from a more efficient path to a new product or clinical application.
Our key goal is to accelerate the early stages of ideas so that they become an attractive proposition to partners who can take forward products and technologies to reach patients sooner.
