Mayo Clinic conducts basic, translational, clinical and epidemiological research at its campuses in Arizona, Florida and Minnesota and throughout Mayo Clinic Health System.

The needs of patients drive research at Mayo Clinic. As doctors treat patients and see opportunities for advancing patient care, they work together with Mayo scientists and research teams to develop new and improved diagnostic tools, medications, devices, treatment protocols and more.

Mayo Clinic's unique culture of collaboration and teamwork, and its extensive facilities and resources, make it possible for researchers to unravel and solve complex research questions. Answering these questions requires a team of physicians who care for patients with a disease, basic scientists who investigate the condition's molecular basis and epidemiologists who study its effect on populations.

This close integration makes it possible to quickly bring proven diagnostics and therapeutics to patients and share this knowledge with the next generation of doctors and scientists.

The results? More hope. Fresh answers. Improved patient care. Better health.
