Research

Mayo Clinic doctors and scientists are studying new ways to diagnose and treat brain tumors. Mayo Clinic 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.

Brain tumor research is conducted by the Neuro-Oncology Program and 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.

The Cancer Nanotechnology and Tumor Immunology Laboratory uses advanced imaging techniques, nanomedicine, anti-cancer immunotherapies and biomarkers to learn more about solid cancers affecting the brain and improve treatment for people with brain tumors.
