Research

Neuroblastoma 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.

Your child has access to the latest diagnostic and treatment advances that result from Mayo Clinic's pediatric hematology/oncology research and from Mayo Clinic's participation in cooperative clinical research trial networks, including the Children's Oncology Group.
