The patent is the invention of Lemuel J. Bowie Ph.D., an African American from Vicksburg, Mississippi who was educated at Xavier University in New Orleans, Howard University, and Johns Hopkins. Through this licensing agreement, Mayo Clinic's reference laboratory, Mayo Medical Laboratories will make the test available to patients worldwide.
