Technology Translation

Management Operations

We seek to deliver therapeutic, diagnostic and production benefits in areas as diverse as cancer, immunology, public health and personalised treatment.

The Translation Team is comprised of former researchers with expertise in all aspects of technology identification, assessment, protection, development and commercialisation. We help the Sanger Institute’s researchers translate their research towards a product or service that enables healthcare benefit by:

  • Conducting thorough technology evaluations and market research
  • De-risking early ideas and technologies
  • Protecting ideas through filing patents if appropriate
  • Assisting with development plans and funding
  • Undertaking extensive business development activities
  • Structuring and negotiating collaboration, evaluation, license and spin-out agreements
  • Managing established development partnerships
