ROCHESTER, Minn. — Mayo Clinic today hosted University of Minnesota President Eric Kaler, Ph.D., to sign a renewal of a memorandum of understanding, tour Mayo Clinic, and meet with University of Minnesota students who are training and practicing at Mayo Clinic. During the visit, Mayo Clinic and University of Minnesota leaders stressed a long and cherished tradition of collaboration.

According to research released by the Battelle Technology Partnership Practice in 2010, Mayo Clinic and the University of Minnesota have a combined $18.5 billion economic impact on the state of Minnesota. Mayo Clinic, an academic medical center, is the state's largest private employer, and the University of Minnesota is the state's largest institution of higher education.

"Truly, the histories of our institutions are intertwined. Mayo Clinic's collaborative partnership with the University of Minnesota began in 1907, representing our first external collaboration, and remains a priority today," says John Noseworthy, M.D., president and CEO of Mayo Clinic. "We are proud to work with the University of Minnesota to educate and conduct groundbreaking research. President Kaler's visit today is the continuation of a relationship that has flourished for more than 100 years and that will continue to be important for our institutions for generations to come."

"The University of Minnesota's partnership with Mayo Clinic represents an incredibly powerful combination that is and will be a force for improving health outcomes in Minnesota and around the world," says Dr. Kaler. "I am deeply gratified to renew this partnership that builds on our shared history and invites a future of imagination and innovation."
