Mayo Clinic and ASU team up on Alliance for Health Care
Mayo Clinic and Arizona State University (ASU) announced a comprehensive new model for health care education and research called the Mayo Clinic and Arizona State University Alliance for Health Care. The goal of the alliance is to accelerate cutting-edge research discoveries and improve patient care through health care innovation and medical education transformation.
Mayo Clinic and ASU have collaborated for more than a decade. The new alliance provides a more formal and deeper relationship and provides cohesion to a collection of joint projects of strategic importance.
Lois Krahn, M.D. (MED ’89, ’93, P-CON ’94), Mayo Clinic Department of Psychiatry and Psychology, is the physician liaison for Mayo Clinic.
Arizona State University plans to build a 150,000-square-foot Health Solutions Innovation Center on land it owns, just east of the Mayo Clinic campus in Phoenix. Within this facility, the alliance will focus on creating a world-class learning environment to advance patient care. The facility will feature a med-tech innovation accelerator, biomedical engineering and informatics research labs, and an education zone.
