About Us

Empowering the convergence of research disciplines through connection and collaboration to address challenges in human health and disease.
Solving big challenges in human health and disease requires convergence—the meshing of ideas, expertise, and approaches to create innovation pathways from concept to breakthrough.
The MESH Academy is a dedicated team at the Keck School of Medicine of USC, formed to create a connective tissue across disciplines to empower convergence, and accelerate the pace of groundbreaking discoveries and their translation into revolutionary therapies.
The MESH Academy is a program jointly supported by the Keck School of Medicine of USC and the USC Office of the Provost.

MESH constitutes a spectrum of relationships across stakeholders involving shared interests and co-creating bold new innovative partnerships.
The end results will vary but the overarching goal is to widen the sphere of innovation, identify capabilities, and provide a menu of options for faculty to take their research, innovations, and entrepreneurial interests to the next level.
