Center/Program Highlights:SPARK was created as an innovative, cost-effective way to overcome the hurdles associated with translating academic discoveries into drugs or diagnostics that address real clinical needs.

The SPARK mission is two-fold:

  1. 1- To help academicians overcome the obstacles involved in moving research innovations from bench to bedside
  2. 2- To educate faculty, postdoctoral fellows and graduate students on the translational research process and path to clinical application so that development of promising discoveries becomes second nature within our institution
