New Name, Same Mission
Since 1952, the mission of the Minneapolis Medical Research Institute (MMRF) has been improving patient care and the health of our community through research and education. With a current focus on four areas – Acute Care/Trauma, Addiction, Health Services and Infectious Disease (HIV/AIDS) – we support and oversee the medical research conducted at HCMC, the flagship hospital of the Hennepin Healthcare system. Later this year, the MMRF name and logo will change to better align with our parent and affiliate organizations. While our mission will stay the same, MMRF will re-brand as the Hennepin Healthcare Research Institute. Read more about the name change and research’s role in the Hennepin Healthcare system.
