Mazza tells Marshfield Clinic Research Foundation history

Wisconsin Medical Society member Joseph Mazza, MD, has written A Fifty Year History of Marshfield Clinic Research Foundation, 1959-2009, which highlights the pioneering work of MCRF as well as its expansion, development of new technologies and establishment of the National Farm Medicine Center.

A hematologist/oncologist, Dr. Mazza joined Marshfield Clinic in 1970 and now is a senior research scientist for MCRF. He has written more than 100 scientific articles, book chapters and books, including the 25-year history of the National Farm Medicine Center published in 2006, and he is a longtime member of the WMJ Editorial Board.

In 1959, Stephan Epstein, MD, established MCRF to complement the clinic, which had 35 physicians. Its published research led to financial support from outside institutions and agencies, and MCRF became a reference center for genetics research during the 1990s.

The 56-page paperback book and digital version is available for purchase on Amazon.
