A boost for the economy, research, and health care access


During the 2013 Legislative session, Gov. Mark Dayton and policymakers supported University of Minnesota initiatives aimed at advancing research, boosting the state’s economy, and ensuring health care access.

The Legislature made a two-year, $35.6 million investment in MnDRIVE, Minnesota Discovery, Research and InnoVation Economy, to fund research initiatives in four key industries: food production, robotics, water quality, and neuromodulation — a growing research field focused on treatments for brain disorders.

The state also restored Medical Education and Research Costs program funding to 2010 levels. That increase will allow hospitals and clinics to continue to train the next generation of our state’s doctors, pharmacists, nurses, and dentists and help to ensure that communities throughout Minnesota have adequate access to health care.
