Translational Research Office (TRO)


Business & Innovation Group

The Business & Innovation Group (B&IG) provides strategic support to Faculties across UCL, to enhance the translation of Biomedical Research across all therapeutic modalities, through collaboration with stakeholders in the Healthcare sector. 

Our activities include brokering interactions for UCL academics with industry, to identify and create new collaboration opportunities and assist academics in forming bespoke partnerships. 

We support UCL's translational research strategy through mapping internal research capabilities, building multidisciplinary translational research communities and aligning those internal strengths with unmet market needs. Therapeutic Innovation Networks such as Cell, Gene & Regenerative Medicine, Small Molecules, Biologics, Devices and Diagnostics are key areas of focus supported by the B&IG.
