Klobuchar's announcement came as she released a report showing that the U.S. will need more than 1 million more workers in the areas of science, technology, mathematics and engineering (or STEM) in the next decade.
"From cutting-edge research to creative workforce training partnerships, Mayo embodies the innovative spirit that defines Minnesota and that helps drive our economy forward," Klobuchar said in a statement. "Dr. Noseworthy's attendance at the State of the Union will shine a spotlight on the pioneering work being done at Mayo and underscore the need to invest in innovation and research, STEM education, and workforce training."
In a statement, Noseworthy thanked Klobuchar for the invitation.
"For 150 years, Mayo Clinic has been committed to putting the needs of our patients first, and we will continue our work with legislators and regulators to share our ideas and promote the interests of patients, research and medical education," he said.
