Mayo Clinic and Arizona State University Alliance for Health Care
ASU's Mayo Clinic and ASU Alliance for Health Care, housed in the Health Futures Center, grows out of a nearly two-decades-long relationship between the nation’s most innovative university and the recognized world leader in patient care, medical education and research. Through the alliance the two organizations have a shared goal of bringing the brightest minds together to accelerate cutting-edge research discoveries, improve patient care through innovation, and transform medical education to enhance health outcomes at individual, community and national levels.
The Health Futures Center was launched in 2020 and supports interdepartmental research and collaborative programs with Mayo Clinic — including ASU’s College of Health Solutions, Edson College of Nursing and Health Innovation, Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering, and the J. Orin Edson Entrepreneurship and Innovation Institute — on a new campus, establishing a nexus of research, teaching and meeting space.
The MedTech Accelerator is a flagship program of the Mayo Clinic and Arizona State University Alliance for Health Care, providing early-stage medical device and health care technology companies with an entrepreneurial curriculum and personalized business development plans to accelerate go-to-market and investment possibilities.
