UMMC and Mayo Clinic sign agreement to increase research and training
Date:7/9/2010

JACKSON, Miss. The University of Mississippi Medical Center will partner with the renowned Mayo Clinic on a series of initiatives intended to convert laboratory discoveries into new therapies and train a new generation of medical scientists.

An agreement between the institutions, titled the Translational Research and Training Program for Clinician Scientists, was formally announced July 8 at UMMC during a visit from Mayo Clinic researchers. The agreement sets the stage for a wide array of possible collaborations in the future.

Through training, mentorship and research collaborations, the two institutions will look for ways to translate the understanding of diseases from basic-science research into clinically applicable methods, drugs, devices and therapies that will benefit patients.

"This agreement represents the completion of a couple years of effort toward extending current collaborations and the advent of new opportunities between our institutions," said Dr. John E. Hall, UMMC associate vice chancellor for research.

"UMMC has certain expertise and accomplishments and Mayo, as one of the most respected names in academic medicine, also has expertise and accomplishments in areas that are complementary to UMMC. The goal is to make a two-way street for training, research and learning opportunities."

The collaboration lays the groundwork for more specific collaborations, research and training agreements in the future.

For instance, Mayo and UMMC might exchange junior faculty members, post-doctoral fellows and residents so each can learn from the host institution's expertise. Collaborative research agreements could deepen the knowledge about a given disease, provide access to equipment and resources for clinician scientists and lead to development of drugs, therapies and medical devices that improve care for patients.

"Our combined expertise will enable us to work together to discover and implem
