Corporate partnerships in the Faculty of Medicine

The Faculty of Medicine at Imperial aims to accelerate the translation of research findings into better care for patients and populations. Working together with business and industry is essential to achieve this goal.

Head of Corporate Partnerships

We help industrial partners to design the right partnership for their specific needs and make connections with our academics.

We also work with academics to help them find and open doors to explore opportunities for research and translation for mutual benefit. The Corporate Partnerships team belongs to the Enterprise division, Imperial’s dedicated department for industry interactions and business ventures.

The Corporate Partnerships team combines experience in academic research and the biotechnology and healthcare industry.  We are always eager to listen to the interests of Corporate partners. Together we can employ academic curiosity and leading edge innovation to tackle complex real-world challenges.
