Catalyzing Innovation in Clinical and Translational Research

We believe that the key elements for success in clinical and translational research already exist at Harvard, including the intellectual force, technologies, and clinical expertise necessary to reduce the burden of human illness. What is missing is a systematic way for investigators from disparate disciplines and institutions to:

  • Find each other and form teams
  • Share tools and technologies
  • Receive advanced training and education in the principles and practice of clinical and translational science, and
  • Obtain seed funding to embark upon new areas of investigation

Fostering a culture of innovation and collaboration that encourages the translation of ideas into practice is the key to our success.
