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

recognizes top opportunities to translate scientific discoveries into patient care, Mayo Clinic researchers from a variety of disciplines will be eligible to apply for a grant from the Investment Fund. In addition to this important gift from Mr. and Mrs. Applebaum, Mayo will dedicate to this fund a portion of its own revenues, generated through the commercialization of Mayo-developed technologies, to further support this research.

"Typically it takes many years for a discovery to move out of the lab and into the clinical setting," explains John Noseworthy, M.D., a neurologist and chair of the Neuroscience Research Initiative. "We believe this additional funding will help accelerate that process by giving support to researchers who are working directly with patients. These physicians can use the knowledge they gain from day-to-day interaction with their patients to figure out how a discovery may eventually have application to patient care. This is a very exciting time for research and for the future care of our patients."

"At Mayo Clinic, we see our work as having three component parts: practice, education and research," says Hugh Smith, M.D., chair of the Mayo Clinic Rochester Board of Governors. "While the process of research is lengthy, it strengthens our medical practice every day because the presence of research creates a spirit of inquiry that keeps people asking questions and searching for answers. And sharing this information through formal and informal education opportunities means everyone here can benefit from it. We truly value this partnership the Applebaums have helped make possible."

The Applebaums are long time patients and benefactors of Mayo Clinic. Mr. Applebaum is the president of Arbor Investments Group.

In 1998 it was acquired by Rhode Island-based CVS, a "Fortune 100" organization and the nation's largest dru
