Mayo Clinic entered into a major agreement with the government of India Wednesday. The clinic has agreed to pair some of its research areas with similar research efforts in India in the hopes of speeding up the amount of medical breakthroughs. Mayo Clinic already had research agreements with companies in Sweden and the Czech Republican. "But I think this is a really significant one because India is really a scientific powerhouse," said Dr. Eric Wieben, head of Mayo's Genomics Research Center.
