Mayo Clinic announces campaign to raise $3 billion

ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- Mayo Clinic is looking to the future in a big way as it launches a campaign to raise $3 billion.

It's all part of the "You are ... the campaign for Mayo Clinic" being announced Thursday. The goal of the campaign is to raise $3 billion by the end of 2017 to strengthen patient care, research and education at Mayo.

A focal point for the campaign is biomedical research. It would be used for studies in using healthy tissues to cure diseased organs, as well as disease prognosis and treatment based on an individual's genome.  

The campaign's public launch coincides with Mayo Clinic's sesquicentennial celebration underway this week.
