Bench to Bedside

The SPARK program is a translational research and educational program that largely emulates the highly successful SPARK program that has been running at Stanford University, School of Medicine for the past eight years.

SPARK Oceania includes programs across Australia (with the potential for growth into New Zealand in future years!) including those run out of Monash University, University of Melbourne and Sydney.

Accelerate your Medical Technology or Therapeutic

SPARK Programs are focused around existing early stage medical technologies or therapeutics, providing training, mentorship and milestone funding to help navigate early stage translation.

Don’t have existing IP but want to get into biomedical entrepreneurship? Biodesign Australia courses focus on the ideation, invention and implementation of medical technologies!
