The Partnership Development Office establishes the partnerships and collaborations among our scientists and external researchers in government, academia, industry, and the nonprofit research sector. 

We engage with a wide range of research collaborators and partners—from international research institutes to start-up companies—to solve urgent problems in biomedical research. By working together, we accelerate progress against cancer, AIDS, and emerging health challenges.

Our office offers a range of contractual agreement options to fit a variety of partners and projects. The appropriate collaborative mechanism is considered based on the scope and objectives of the partnership. 

The Frederick National Laboratory also offers a range of unique laboratory services through our Technical Services Program. These services are readily available on a reimbursable basis via a Technical Service Agreement.
