The Translational Research Office: How can we help?

Abstract :
The Translational Research Office (TRO) sits within the Medical Sciences Division of the university and can advise researchers on the translational potential of their research projects ensuring progression towards novel applications. We work closely with researchers to develop a ‘roadmap to implementation’ on their approaches ranging from novel therapies to medical devices or clinical trials. We also host the Entrepreneur and Experts in Residence programmes that provides researchers opportunities to leverage world-leading expertise and advice across multiple industry sectors.
