The Mayo Clinic Cancer Center receives funding from the National Cancer Institute and is designated as a comprehensive cancer center — recognition for an institution's scientific excellence and multidisciplinary resources focused on cancer prevention, diagnosis and treatment. Mayo Clinic Cancer Center is one of only three cancer centers to receive a National Cancer Institute-sponsored Specialized Program of Research Excellence (SPORE) grant for brain cancer research.
Many people receiving cancer treatment at Mayo Clinic participate in clinical trials and associated research, including studies of tumor biology, neuropathology and epidemiology. This large patient base forms the foundation of neuro-oncology research, which is conducted as part of the comprehensive Mayo Clinic Cancer Center. Mayo Clinic Cancer Center is dedicated to understanding the biology of cancer, discovering new ways to predict, prevent, diagnose and treat cancer, and transforming the quality of life for people with cancer.
