Strengthening Bonds

DOD OPENS

ROCHESTER, Minn. — The Mayo Clinic and the Department of Defense are hoping a new addition will strengthen and already strong bond.

The clinic has opened a new Department of Defense Medical Research Office.

Mayo Leaders hope the new office will help improve communication between the parties when it comes to special projects.

Those include restoring the health of military personnel after complex injuries.

“What we want to do is make that better,” Mayo Clinic Department of Defense Medical Research Office Director Dr. Peter Amadio said.  “We try to improve communication. Because, we think, there are people here who are doing research that could help the Department of Defense that aren’t aware of it and vice versa.”

He adds Mayo has had a long, strong standing relationship with the Department of Defense and that this move is very beneficial for both sides.
