At Mayo Clinic, clinicians and scientists work as a team to form a close link between patient care and research. This teamwork has produced a long history of achievement in the areas of basic and translational research, including a Nobel Prize for the development of cortisone.
For patients, close collaboration means that their Mayo physicians are both up-to-date in their medical specialties and knowledgeable about the newest scientific discoveries and treatment options.
For investigators, this collaborative approach ensures an opportunity for basic as well as translational research that provides the satisfaction of seeing your research findings directly improve the health and lives of people.
Research at Mayo is characterized by collaboration among research groups and shared resources. The annual budget exceeds $296 million. More than half of the funding is supplied by NIH and other extramural sources and supports a wide range of research programs.
Research resources are coordinated through centralized research services so investigation can proceed quickly and efficiently. Individual labs and investigators need not spend precious research time with administrative activities.
