Advancing Clinical and Translational Research

Individualized medicine is the promise of advances in genetics, computing and nanotechnology. Translating these advances into real-world applications requires strong collaboration between leading research and clinical partners.

The University of Illinois and Mayo Clinic have formed a strategic alliance to promote a broad spectrum of collaborative research, the development of new technologies and clinical tools and the design and implementation of novel education programs.

There are an almost infinite number of collaborative research opportunities within the Mayo-Illinois Alliance. Mayo brings an exceptional portfolio of clinical medicine, biomedical and translational research and healthcare delivery. Illinois provides strengths in engineering, technology and life sciences--especially in high-performance computing, software, imaging, nanotechnology, genomics and tissue engineering.
