Mayo Clinic & ASU announce 2019 seed grant recipients
Mayo Clinic and Arizona State University (ASU) have announced 2019 seed grant recipients. The two institutions have provided seed funding to new, interdisciplinary and translational joint research projects since 2005. By launching novel research on a small scale, researchers have been able to attract funding needed for larger studies that may make a significant impact in their fields of research and improve patient care.
Each research team includes one researcher from Mayo Clinic and one from ASU. From 2005 through 2017, the Mayo Clinic and ASU seed grants have translated into 57 externally funded projects worth approximately $30.5 million. Seed grant recipients also have shared their knowledge through more than 25 journal publications and by mentoring student researchers.
