NCATS’ chemistry technology work to develop innovative chemical tools is collaborative by nature, and the Center always encourages new partnership opportunities, including disease-specific projects with patient advocacy groups and disease foundations.
How to Collaborate
Investigators who have a specific chemistry technology need and want to collaborate with NCATS’ chemistry technology experts can follow the steps outlined below.
Submit a Request
Send an email to Nicole Spears with the following details:
- A summary of the idea/vision
- Research goals
- Project needs
- Level or area of chemistry expertise
NCATS staff will evaluate the idea and try to match the investigator with the appropriate expert.
Project Initiation, Conduct and Closing
Once NCATS determines if the research goals and needs align with those of the Center, a formal collaboration agreement may be executed, if necessary, and the project may begin.
