Office for Translational Research


The OTR can help you find the right partners for your project. 

In order for your project to progress along the pipeline, it is important to think how your product (whether a device, drug or intervention) will be rolled out. Are you envisaging spinning out a company? Are you considering licensing your product or making a business case within the NHS? These questions will determine which partners are necessary to further your aims, especially in the case of industry partners.

Identifying the unique combination of individuals, industry sector and infrastructure essential to driving your project forward can be a major barrier to initiating your translational project. Our deep understanding of the local medical, educational and industrial landscape, alongside our established Cambridge network and knowledge base, allow us to function as your broker of expertise, helping you to identify the best route for your research and to manage your partnerships and collaborations.
