Dr. Passos' research team in the Cell and Molecular Aging Laboratory at Mayo Clinic is making significant strides to advance aging research, and that is due in part to the generosity of benefactors who support research through their gifts.

Benefactors are a key part of scientific discovery. Government funding alone isn't enough to sustain the resources needed for discoveries to counteract aging and age-related diseases. Benefactor gifts, in any amount, will help Mayo Clinic researchers continue to advance aging research and offer the best care available to patients.
