Research and Innovation director named for Mayo Clinic Health System
Timothy J. Nelson, M.D., Ph.D., has been named the director of Research and Innovation for Mayo Clinic Health System in northwest Wisconsin.
Officials with Mayo Clinic Health System say the newly created position will support collaboration between Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, and Mayo Clinic Health System.
Nelson is from Osseo.
“As someone with strong roots in western Wisconsin, I am honored and excited to be part of this trailblazing initiative to help further establish the Chippewa Valley as a leader in health care innovation — not just in the region or state, but as a nationwide example of collaboration,” says Dr. Nelson. “By working together with UW-Eau Claire, Mayo Clinic and Mayo Clinic Health System, our collective expertise and passion for learning and discovery will serve to address unmet medical needs and advance the development of health care technologies and treatments we can provide for patients, while also increasing scientific scholarship opportunities for faculty and college students.”
