We created a network of like-minded scientists in academia that can be recruited quickly to address global health challenges
SPARK Global - SPARKing Everywhere
The idea of SPARK was already adapted by 25 universities worldwide.
Strength in numbers: SPARK programs have been established or are under development in a dozen academic institutions throughout the world, increasing the likelihood that new treatments will be developed from research across the globe.
With SPARK Global, we also created a network of like-minded scientists in academia that can be recruited quickly to address global health challenges when they arise.
SPARK's Partnerships with Academic Institutions
The SPARK model for translational research has proven to be a successful program that can be replicated at other academic institutions as a cost-effective way to facilitate the development of research discoveries into novel therapeutics or diagnostics.
Several academic institutions have successfully developed their own SPARK programs based upon the SPARK at Stanford model.
