Research

Mayo Clinic doctors and scientists are studying ways to improve the diagnosis and treatment of bladder cancer. Learn more about urology research.

Mayo Clinic maintains an extensive registry of people who have undergone partial or radical cystectomies. Researchers use this registry to monitor cancer and surgery outcomes, search for possible trends and connections, and ensure overall quality of care.

Cancer research is conducted in coordination with the Mayo Clinic Cancer Center. 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.
