Researchers at Mayo Clinic are involved in extensive studies of the identification, prevention, diagnosis and treatment of familial cancers. At Mayo Clinic, you may have the opportunity to participate in studies designed to identify your susceptibility to cancer and improve your preventive care and treatment options.

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.
