MU’s longstanding culture of collaboration encourages faculty to partner with like-minded researchers from other fields. The Mizzou Advantage initiative builds on this rich history in four deep-seated areas of strength: 
Food for the Future: the culture, economics and production of healthy, affordable food
Media of the Future: new ways to communicate, educate and market
One Health/One Medicine: health solutions and the convergence of human/animal medicine
Sustainable Energy: sustainable energy development, distribution and education

MU is an AAU institution with world-renowned research centers, scholars and infrastructure in these four areas. It is one of a handful of universities with a medical school, a college of veterinary medicine, a law school, an engineering college and a college of agriculture – all on the same campus, all within walking distance.

As a model land-grant institution, Mizzou is committed to making university research broadly available. Scientists collaborate with corporate partners, government agencies, universities and other entities – locally, nationally and globally. These partnerships, coupled with MU’s profound expertise, create a formula for success.
