Membership in SPARK Global Network
We cooperate with Stanford University and we are members of SPARK Global
By signing the Global Charter, the Faculty of Medicine started cooperation with Stanford University within the SPARK programme for support of translational research and became a member of SPARK Global network, which connects more than 60 institutions around the world and supports translation of results of biomedical research into clinical practice.
The SPARK program was established at Stanford School of Medicine in 2006 in order to facilitate the path of biomedical research into clinical practice in the form of new treatment and diagnostic procedures for patients. The program provides top consultancy through a network of experts and helps scientists push their results closer to practical use.
