Mayo Clinic, University of Minnesota launch fight with diabetes

It's diabetes or bust. The University of Minnesota and Mayo Clinic are betting Minnesota's economic future on treating and even curing diabetes, the leading cause of death in the United States. Dubbed Decade of Discovery, the partnership between the state's two top research institutions will seek $250 million to $350 million over the next ten years to fund clinical research, public health initiatives and efforts that convert promising technologies into companies and industries.
