Springboard, Imagine’s Accelerator
Springboard is Imagine’s dedicated initiative to provide funding and expertise for projects in genetic rare diseases, aimed at the foundation of startup companies. Its goal is to maximize the chances of bringing innovations from the lab to the bedside in order to best help patients.
Lab-in-labs Innovation Platform
Lab-in-labs hosts industry partners in close proximity to researchers and doctors at Imagine to facilitate partnership research.
At Imagine, we want to make sure our research results are transformed into medical solutions to benefit patients. We take part in clinical research projects to confirm the value of new approaches in human trials.
These projects deepen our understanding of diseases, test new diagnostic and therapeutic approaches, and are a required stage in drug development before requesting approval to market the drug and make it available for patients. Imagine Institute’s teams are currently involved in more than 500 clinical trials.
Bioentrepreneurs Launchpad Program
