MN Partnership for Biotechnology & Medical Genomics: Research Grant Program
The Minnesota Partnership for Biotechnology and Medical Genomics is a state of Minnesota funded initiative that provides support for innovative research conducted by collaborative teams from the University of Minnesota and Mayo Clinic. Since its inception in 2004, the state has committed ~ $143,000,000 to the Partnership. The Partnership Research Grant program is a yearly funding opportunity that provides support for innovative research proposals across the entire spectrum of biomedical and health care research. The application must be a joint project that requires collaboration between the two institutions, that could otherwise not be conducted individually. Successful completion of a funded project is expected to lead to additional federal funding (i.e., NIH) and/or development of a commercializable product or initiation of a clinical trial.
