Frank Prendergast and Family

Frank Prendergast and Family.  Frank is an M.D./PhD. and one, if not, THE most intelligent person I know.  I met Frank a few years ago when he invited me to a private dinner with the now President of Mayo Clinic, Dr. John Noseworthy, a neurologist, to discuss, “Customized Medicine”.  Ironically, the U of I also was discussing a collaborative research program with Mayo Clinic (and it since has been implemented) and thus began this special collaboration.  I introduced Frank to the Kauffman Foundation and hopefully a collaboration will emerge.  Frank is internationally known, he headed The Cancer Center at Mayo (most likely founded it), serves on important national boards and is always available for a telephone call.  I wished his son had made that goal against the Italians in soccer.
