SPARK TEL AVIV is a mentoring program created to accelerate scientific discoveries with a high potential impact on therapeutics by bridging the gap between academic research and the healthcare industry.


Our mission is to help researchers from TAU and affiliated hospitals overcome the obstacles involved in moving their early discoveries from bench/workstation to bedside by directing and facilitating their translational research.



Computational SPARK Track:

This year, for the first time, SPARK TEL AVIV teams with the Edmond J. Safra Center for Bioinformatics at TAU to open a new computational track, aiming to enable translation of computational biomedical research to healthcare practice. The call invites translation of novel computational techniques into clinical and digital health applications. The program will support expenses needed for taking the project toward implementation, including market surveys and analyses, product design, and software engineering efforts required for reaching commercial-quality and clinic-ready computational tools.


Admitted projects will receive milestone-based funds to support and de-risk each project, up to $100,000 per project/year, for a maximum of 2 years. Funded projects will receive continuous education programs, mentorship, and access to expert advisors at all stages of product development.
