Mayo Clinic’s first Advance the Practice Research Awards
Mayo Clinic recognized 14 projects with Advance the Practice Research Awards. The selected projects address unmet clinical needs of patients through development of novel therapeutics, devices, diagnostics or other health care-related products; or development and implementation of novel practice initiatives.
Submissions were evaluated on medical need, potential for commercialization, readiness of the technology or process to advance to the next stage of translation, impact on clinical practice, and strength of the investigative team and any collaborators.
Each selected project receives a $50,000 research award and project management and subject matter expertise from the Center for Clinical and Translational Science (CCaTS) Office of Translation to Practice.
The awards are an initiative of the Office of Translation to Practice in collaboration with the Department of Medicine in Rochester, Mayo Clinic Ventures, Research leadership in Arizona and Florida, and the Center for Connected Care.
