The Cambridge Academy of Therapeutic Sciences (CATS) is a strategic research initiative established to facilitate the development of new therapeutics and support the education and training of the next generation of world-leading researchers.
The Academy welcomes academics from across the University, scientists and managers from industry, and key opinion leaders and thinkers concerned with regulatory, legal and policy issues. The Translation Champion network consists of senior academic members from across schools and relevant departments active in therapeutics and medtech research.
It is supported by funding from the Wellcome Trust Translational Partnership Award (WT TPA), which brings over £2m funding to the University to support its translational strategy and to encourage new engagement in translational research.
Translation Champions help to directly support translational research projects, through various internal awards such as the Developing Concept Fund, Access to Expertise, and the CATS Experts in Residence programme.
They also sponsor training and focus on bridging the gender gap in innovation
