Ovarian 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.

Mayo Clinic is one of a select group of medical centers in the United States to be recognized as a Specialized Program of Research Excellence (SPORE) for ovarian cancer research, funded by the National Cancer Institute.

Women's Cancer Program

Women's Cancer Program researchers work to improve treatment for women who have breast and gynecologic cancers. Researchers in gynecologic surgery, medical and radiation oncology, medical genetics, pathology and other specialties work together to give women who have cancer the widest possible range of treatment options.

The Women's Cancer Program also provides social support classes, a resource center and education for women and their families.
