Cambridge Academy of Therapeutic Sciences

 

The Therapeutic Interest Groups (TIGs), hosted by CATS and on the University of Cambridge’s virtual platform Connect: Health Tech are created to better support the research community interested in therapeutics or medtech development. The 10 TIGs have been created according to the therapeutic modalities and will bring together cross disciplinary expertise from both industry and academia to overcome hurdles in therapeutics discovery and development.

 

By joining the TIGs, you will benefit from:

  • Membership of CATS and access to our international newsletter highlighting events, training, funding and networking opportunities in and around Cambridge.
  • Access to the University of Cambridge’s online virtual platform Connect: Health Tech will bring together and integrate a community from across the University, research institutes, NHS, industry, investors, local and national Government, with a focus on med tech, digital health and therapeutics, to create opportunities that will transform ideas at the interface between medicine and technology into reality.
  • Therapeutic modality tailored activities including finding expertise, seminars, networking and training.
  • Gaining better visibility for others to find you, such as investors and potential collaborators.
  • Finding new opportunities, initiating exciting projects and accelerating translation.
  • Overcoming gaps and challenges, be it in research funding, training or support in therapeutic and medtech translation
  • Building and strengthening strategic partnerships with industry, academia and other sectors.
