Mayo Clinic is a leading academic medical and research center with an annual research budget of nearly $650 million, more than $370 million of which comes from competitive extramural grants and contracts.

At Mayo Clinic, students have the opportunity to work on a wide range of fundamental and translational biomedical research projects in state-of-the-art research facilities.

Key factors that distinguish Mayo Clinic research include:

  • Collaborative environment to share resources and ideas. While each Mayo Clinic investigator has a competitively funded independent laboratory, active collaborations with other research groups within the institution and other research centers are common.
  • Outstanding core laboratories and facilities. Mayo Clinic has more than 50 research centers, programs and core laboratories and more than 347,000 square feet of research laboratory space.
  • Access to clinical data for translational research. Researchers have access to invaluable clinical data from more than 6 million patient histories from Mayo Clinic's premier clinical practice.
  • Centralized research resource coordination. Research resources are coordinated through centralized research administration, so investigations can proceed quickly and efficiently. Individual labs and investigators need not spend precious research time with administrative activities.
  • Scientific publication services. The Section of Scientific Publications, which serves as the in-house editorial office for Mayo Clinic scientific publications, can advise and assist faculty and students at all stages of writing and publishing.
