Innovative Minds Partnering to Advance Curative Therapies (IMPACT) Program

The Innovative Minds Partnering to Advance Curative Therapies (IMPACT) Program is an exciting undergraduate competition that has engaged more than 500 students from 30 Minnesota colleges and universities since its launch in 2014.

Program objective

The IMPACT Program encourages creative solutions to critical health questions through collaboration between undergraduate students, Mayo Clinic and Mayo Clinic Health System.

2018-2019 IMPACT Program

As a result of a new undergraduate research collaboration between Mayo Clinic, Mayo Clinic Health System in northwestern Wisconsin and University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, the 2018-2019 IMPACT Program promises to be bigger and better than ever as it is expands to include colleges and universities throughout Minnesota and Wisconsin.

The format of the program and student awards remains the same. In 2019, the IMPACT Symposium will be held at Mayo Clinic Health System in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, on March 9, 2019.

Student teams have until Nov. 30, 2018, to register.
