SPARK TEL AVIV is a mentoring program that was created to support the academic efforts of translating discoveries into therapeutics that address unmet medical needs. The most valuable asset of SPARK is the unique partnership between university and industry experts. SPARK provides education, mentorship and funding.
The mission of SPARK TEL AVIV is:
To help academics overcome the obstacles involved in moving their early discoveries from bench to bedside.
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 to our institution.
To develop more cost effective and innovative approaches to drug development.
