This year, the Mayo Clinic Office of Applied Scholarship and Education Science has partnered with Regenerative Medicine Minnesota to sponsor the Innovative Minds Partnering to Advance Curative Therapies (IMPACT) program. IMPACT is a competitive program open to Minnesota undergraduate students that encourages them to submit hypotheses for three different challenges. On March 5, participating teams will come to Mayo Clinic to present their ideas through both poster and oral presentations. Winning teams will then be selected for each of the IMPACT challenges. The winning team members will receive $1,000 and the opportunity to conduct their research at Mayo Clinic for the summer. This year’s challenge questions are the following:
We hope you’ll join us on March 5 in the Landow Atrium, Gonda Building to hear undergraduate students present their hypotheses on HLHS, bipolar disorder and ovarian cancer. For more information on the program, visit www.mayo.edu/research/crm/impact.
Send an email to invite people you know to join the HLHS page.
