Innovative Minds Partnering to Advance Curative Therapies (IMPACT) is an exciting undergraduate program that has engaged more than 500 students from 30 Minnesota colleges and universities since its launch in 2014. The IMPACT Program encourages creative solutions to critical health questions through collaboration between undergraduate students and Mayo Clinic. In the program, Minnesota undergraduates engage in novel hypothesis generation to solve real-world health questions alongside Mayo scientists and physicians. By involving students from traditional science majors, as well as nonscience backgrounds, this program forges multidisciplinary partnerships toward the common goal of meeting patient needs.
