Cancer Supercluster RFP documents
Global challenges transcend conventional academic organizational structure. That’s where Colorado State University’s new model of public-private partnering is leading the way. Offering answers to far-reaching questions, the Supercluster concept unites experts from a broad array of research disciplines with a shared goal of finding real world solutions to global challenges and accelerating them to the marketplace.
The Superclusters emulate proven business practices to harness the creative energies of Colorado State University’s academic research community. Each Supercluster has a Chief Scientific Officer who focuses on developing product-driven strategies with the academic research community. The Chief Operating Officer runs a business enterprise arm that advances emerging products by partnering with private and public sector organizations. Patents, licenses, partnerships and startup companies are the focus of the business arm as specialists of both marketplace and university research work to translate discoveries into products.
Cancer is the leading cause of death in pet animals and is a leading cause of death in people. Addressing this global challenge, Colorado State University’s Cancer Supercluster brings together scientists and scholars at the forefront of research from multiple departments and colleges. In addition, unique university infrastructure and capabilities, such as a fully developed clinical trials and tissue archiving program are optimally leveraged. Scholarly excellence in this extraordinary research environment fosters creativity in promoting product and policy development with potential for global impact.
