Building cross-sector collaborations
Finding solutions to the complex problems we face requires more of our researchers and research. From an ever-finer understanding of the functions of cells to a global-scale perspective of the human impacts on ecosystems, each step forward requires cross-disciplinary, cross-sector collaboration.
To encourage these collaborations we will develop a program that funds research that creates bridges between disciplines and links with industry. Graduate students will be the linchpin connecting academic research and Minnesota’s thriving bioscience business community through fellowship and internship opportunities.
Your gift will help advance cross-disciplinary research collaboration sacross sectors and provide graduate students with valuable opportunities to gain experience outside academia.
