CSU teams up with Mayo
December 4, 2006
Mayo Clinic has signed a multi-year biomedically focused research agreement with Colorado State University to collaborate on the development of oncology and infectious disease therapeutics. Colorado State’s world-leading expertise in biomedical research and Mayo’s unparalleled reputation for integrating groundbreaking research and patient care provide the foundation for this innovative partnership.
Colorado State in Fort Collins will be only the second university with which Mayo Clinic is collaborating on research and education initiatives at its Scottsdale, Ariz., campus. The collaboration will allow the unique opportunity for Mayo Clinic and Colorado State to combine expertise in comparative oncology and disease treatments. The objective of the collaboration is to identify research and educational initiatives for vaccinology, oncology and infectious disease therapies.
“The goal of this collaboration is to bring new diagnostic tests specifically related to cancer and infectious diseases to aid us in advancing biomedical research in oncology and to bring potentially new diagnostics and therapeutics to our patients,” said Dr. Ronald J. Marler, associate director for Research/Research Alliances at Mayo Clinic.
