17 Projects Receive Advance the Practice Research Awards

Medical need and commercialization potential were among the key criteria considered in the selection of 17 research projects to receive Advance the Practice Research Awards in 2019. Other important criteria included readiness for translation, impact on clinical practice, and the strength of the research team and its collaborators.

These winning projects were selected from among 56 submitted. Each will receive a monetary award as well as project management and subject matter expertise from the Center for Clinical and Translational Science (CCaTS) Office of Translation to Practice. The projects address patients' unmet clinical needs through the development of novel therapeutics, devices, diagnostics or other products; or through the development and implementation of novel practice initiatives.

The awards are an initiative of the Office of Translation to Practice in collaboration with Mayo Clinic Ventures, research leadership at Mayo Clinic's campuses in Arizona and Florida, the Department of Medicine and Department of Orthopedic Surgery at Mayo's campus in Minnesota, and the Department of Surgery at Mayo's campus in Arizona.

"We'd like to thank our partners for their support of the 2019 Advance the Practice Research Award program and especially thank the dozens of investigators who took the time to submit their innovative proposals for consideration," said Andrew D. Badley, M.D., director of the Office of Translation to Practice. "The teams that were successful in this round represent some of the best and brightest at Mayo, and the projects they propose have a high chance of meaningfully impacting our patients and our practice."
