Warwick Wellcome Trust Translational Partnership

About the partnership

Launched in 2020, the Warwick-Wellcome Translational Partnership aims to drive the translation of research into improvements in human health.

The partnership accelerates the development of new preventative and therapeutic strategies to tackle ill-health locally, nationally and globally. It helps to deliver lasting impact, whilst strengthening links with partners in both industry and clinical settings.

About the Warwick-Wellcome Translational Partnership event.

The partnership is hosting an in-person event from 10.00 – 16.00 on 26th May 2022 at the University of Warwick. Building Translational Partnerships will bring together some of the brightest minds from healthcare industry, regional universities and hospital trusts in a free-form event designed to spark new and exciting translational collaborations.

The event will:  

• Provide a space to gain perspectives from other academics, clinicians and industry outside your immediate network of colleagues and collaborators, all drawn from across the Midlands and interested in translation of healthcare research

• Allow you to hear first-hand from expert speakers through Q&A sessions, as a departure from the typical format of plenary talks

• Enable you to form new collaborations free from the constraints of a conventional sandpit, which can then be used to form the basis of new grant applications. Translational projects and their associated barriers will be proposed by the delegates on the day, to capture the forefront of translation from those active in the field

More about the partnership

The Warwick-Wellcome Trust Translational Partnership focuses on investing in fellowships and projects aimed at exploiting emerging impact in the science of early life, tissue models of human disease and disease control and prevention. Two funding programmes are available to support people and new ideas, whilst developing a translational ecosystem across the University and local NHS trusts.

Translation Fellowships provide the opportunity for researchers to engage with translational research activities and take forward opportunities. Find out about the fellowships.
