Gerstner Family Career Development Awards

The Mayo Clinic Center for Individualized Medicine discovers and integrates the latest in genomic, molecular and clinical sciences into personalized care for patients. The center supports young investigators, who bring new ideas and skills to this critical effort.

The Gerstner Family Career Development Awards are benefactor-sponsored initiatives that provide early career investigators across the Mayo Clinic enterprise with important seed money to conduct research to predict, prevent, treat and cure disease using individualized medicine approaches.

The Gerstner Family Career Development Awards promote a specialized workforce for individualized medicine discovery, translation and application. The funds aid exceptional young investigators at Mayo Clinic who have already demonstrated their commitment to research and help them establish their credentials as highly productive researchers.

Areas of emphasis include:

  • Bioethics
  • Biomarker discovery
  • Clinomics
  • Epigenomics
  • Microbiome research
  • Pharmacogenomics

These career development awards are made possible by a grant from The Louis V. Gerstner Jr. Fund at Vanguard Charitable.
