External R&D Collaborations

The School of Applied Computational Sciences is applying faculty expertise to the following cutting-edge research and development projects that are improving our understanding of COVID-19, developing critical medical instruments, driving advancements in the diagnosis of measles, and harnessing mHealth data to help treatment of hematologic cancer patients and for early diagnosis and prediction of COVID-19 health risks.

We look forward to partnering with businesses and organizations from all industries. Dr. Todd Gary, director of community and external R&D partnerships, will work with you to apply our cutting-edge expertise to help solve your most pressing problems and advance your organizational goals. You may contact him at tpgary@mmc.edu or complete this form to begin a conversation about partnering with us.
