Five big announcements highlight Jacksonville’s Mayo Clinic’s emphasis on research

By Logan Lafferty

Five significant announcements by the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville over the last two weeks highlight what is perhaps an underappreciated aspect of the clinic’s contribution to health care: a focus on research. Four of the announcements concerned the publication of important research studies. The fifth announced that the National Institutes of Health had given the clinic a five-year, $7 million extension on a grant to do research on Parkinson’s disease.
