ACCELERATE is a set of interlinked portfolios of training events, experiences and resources aimed at upskilling the UCL research community in translational research through technical training (ACCELERATE Expertise), skills development (ACCELERATE Success), and encouraging innovative thinking (ACCELERATE Innovation), respectively.
‘Choose your own adventure’ by taking part in specific initiatives (or all of them!) from the above portfolios depending on your interests and need. We'd also like to let you know about our forthcoming online module, ACCELERATE Potential- an introduction to translational research, which will be launching early in 2021.
ACCELERATE is aimed at researchers at UCL who are interested in how to widen the impact of their research, particularly in healthcare, and the skills needed to do so. We welcome and encourage participation from all research disciplines.
ACCELERATE forms part of a wider, Wellcome-Trust-funded initiative to increase translational research capacity across UCL. We, the UCL Academic Careers Office, collaborate with the UCL Translational Research Office on this project. If you want to get involved in translational research communities, check out the UCL Therapeutic Innovation Networks.
