History of MISP

The Mayo Innovation Scholars Program (MISP) was launched in 2006 and is available to students at several private colleges in Minnesota, including Carleton.  In the processes of clinical practice and conducting research, Mayo Clinic scientists develop new products that may be marketable. These products are submitted to the Mayo Clinic Ventures Office for a thorough investigation of its technology and its marketability.  Each year, MISP teams are assigned projects for investigation and research with formal presentations at Mayo Clinic in March.

MISP was developed by the Mayo Clinic and John Meslow, a retired Medtronic executive, with support from the Medtronic Foundation and Mayo Clinic. The program has three main objectives: (1) to assist Mayo's Office of Intellectual Property in the evaluation of new product submissions by Mayo inventors, (2) to provide research internship opportunities for undergraduate science and business students, and (3) to provide leadership development for graduate students.
