It’s official: Institute planning expansion


The Hormel Institute has officially announced its plans for expansion…“Bioscience is one of the fastest growing industries in the country,” said Dr. Ann Bode, associate director of The Institute…Bode said many of the new jobs would be paid by Mayo Clinic, as the Institute renewed its partnership on Oct. 4 with Mayo and the University of Minnesota for “translational cancer research.” “We do basic science research here,” Bode said. “We find mechanisms of action; how drugs work, and (Mayo) is very clinically oriented. So the idea is we will combine our expertise to get our science into (Mayo Clinic) through translational research.”
