About the Translational Research Office (TRO)

The aims of the TRO are to enhance the translational culture within UCL and to facilitate the translation of UCL’s basic and clinical research into therapies, techniques and medical products with therapeutic value. These aims are achieved through interacting with investigators, identifying translatable opportunities, advising on project progression strategy and accessing suitable funding. The TRO also provides project management expertise to steer programmes towards practical endpoints.


We are able to link investigators to the necessary resources (either internal or external) for projects at all phases - discovery, preclinical or clinical.


The TRO has specialist knowledge of the translational funding landscape. We provide assistance with translational funding schemes from the MRC (DPFS/DCS), Wellcome Trust, CRUK, NIHR and others.

The TRO also administers the UCL Therapeutic Innovation Fund and the MRC-funded Confidence in Concept scheme.
