Mayo Clinic receives $15 million to launch innovative neuroscience research program

ROCHESTER, Minn. -- Mayo Clinic has received $15 million for research that will accelerate the testing of promising therapies for patients with diseases of the nervous system. This is the first major gift to Mayo Clinic's Discovery, Innovation and Investment Fund and will help launch an intense program of research focused clearly on patient care. Of this gift, $8 million will be used to test treatment approaches that have already been shown by discovery research to be ready for human trials; $3 million has been dedicated to basic research. Examples of neuroscience research include Alzheimer's disease, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, stroke and spinal cord injury.

The gift, from Eugene and Marcia Applebaum of Bloomfield, Mich., also includes $4 million to endow two Mayo Medical School professorships; this amount will be matched by Mayo Clinic. "People want to know there is hope around the corner," says Mr. Applebaum. "Translational research is the seventh inning of research and there often isn't enough funding at that point to move the research findings quickly to the patient. And, there needs to be a strong educational component to all of this."

Rated the nation's number one neuroscience research center by U.S. News and World Report, Mayo Clinic's translational research is unique. "We are sincerely grateful for the Applebaums' generosity and for their significant interest in research," says Denis Cortese, M.D., President and CEO of Mayo Clinic and the chair of the Discovery Translation Investment Committee. "This gift will support physicians who can take the basic research discoveries of their colleagues and figure out how to apply that knowledge to the treatment of their patients. The Applebaum funding will help Mayo Clinic narrow the gap between basic science and patient care because Mayo Clinic marries the lab and the clinic in a way no other organization does. This is innovation at its best."
