Mayo Clinic has been recognized as a Specialized Program of Research Excellence (SPORE) for ovarian cancer research, funded by the National Cancer Institute.

Ovarian cancer research is conducted in coordination with the Mayo Clinic Cancer Center, which has been designated a comprehensive cancer center in recognition of scientific excellence and multidisciplinary resources focused on cancer prevention, diagnosis and treatment.

Within the Mayo Clinic Cancer Center, researchers in the Women's Cancer Program 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.
