About Our Partnership
Harrington Discovery Institute at University Hospitals in Cleveland, Ohio, part of The Harrington Project for Discovery & Development, supports the efforts of innovative scientists to advance discoveries that will improve lives of patients. In November 2014, the Oxford-Harrington Scholarship Programme was launched to support physician-scientists at the University of Oxford, and elsewhere in the United Kingdom, to translate discovery science into medicines that improve human health. This collaboration between the University of Oxford and Harrington Discovery Institute, leverages their combined expertise and resources to advance drug discovery projects.
This program provides consultancy based support to researchers working on novel drug discovery research problems that have demonstrable potential to become new therapies, but may not be far enough along in the drug development path to receive support from financial investors. The Oxford-Harrington Scholarship Programme provides strategic advising and mentoring from experts in pharmaceutical development through Harrington Discovery Institute’s Innovation Support Center, to help bridge the gap between laboratory-based research and the clinic. Oxford-Harrington Scholars have facilitated access to BioMotiv, a for-profit bio-accelerator associated with The Harrington Project, and aligned with HDI’s mission and structure.
