The Scientific Technology Assessment Research Team (START), led by Stephanie Pond, Ph.D., Vice President of Emerging Technologies, is a dedicated group at TGen with the aim to accelerate the evaluation of pre-commercial technologies that have the power to broadly impact scientific research at TGen and City of Hope.
- START is a team of scientists that works with faculty to identify technology gaps and opportunities.
- We then connect with industry partners outside of TGen and coordinate agreements to enable collaboration.
- We utilize characterized, biological relevant samples to evaluate new technology with the faculty and leading industry partners.
- Together we create high-impact pilot projects to demonstrate the impact of new technology on patient health.
