MAYO CLINIC COLLABORATIVE RESEARCH BUILDING
In 2004, the Mayo Clinic Collaborative Research Building began development. The building is a 100,000 square foot biomedical research facility which includes a site for Translational Genomics Institute (TGen) and available space to accommodate other research collaborations. TGen is dedicated to translating genomics discoveries into advances in human health by developing new drugs for the prevention and treatment of cancer. The building will be completely devoted to cancer research. Mayo Clinic is involved with biotechnology to increase medical knowledge to prevent human diseases. The work supports the Mayo Clinic Cancer Center which is one of only 38 U.S. medical centers named a National Cancer Institute (NCI)-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center.
