Launched in 2022, the Translational Therapeutics Accelerator (TRxA) is a global drug discovery and development program focused on supporting academic scientists in defining optimal strategies for advancing new, cutting-edge therapeutics from the lab to patients. TRxA is now accepting applications for its 2023 funding cycle.
As a nonprofit drug accelerator, TRxA provides the following for principal investigators who are selected to receive an award:
- Resources and hands-on guidance, working closely with academic researchers to develop comprehensive data packages for potential drug candidates, a key to garnering interest from biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies to invest in clinical trials.
- Tactical and strategic drug discovery and development leadership, including regulatory science considerations, bringing diverse expertise to pivotal early-stage academic study designs and implementation.
- Engagement of contract research organizations (CRO) to perform critical discovery phase experiments (e.g., key toxicology and other specialized studies) and/or validate academic studies to develop the type of comprehensive data package pharmaceutical companies require when licensing drug products.
