The University of Minnesota is home to a world-class, collaborative research environment focused on the causes, prevention, detection, and treatment of cancer.

Cancer researchers at UMNWhat we discover has profound benefits for patients and survivors, as well as other scientists, students, professionals, and the community.

For example, at the Masonic Cancer Center, we have the depth and breadth in research and care to reduce the toll of this deadly disease. At the Cancer & Cardiovascular Research Building in the Biomedical Discovery District, researchers are working to fight heart disease and find cures for cancer.

Our researchers are advancing studies in genetics, cell and vaccine therapies, immunology and blood and marrow transplantation. Specialized cell processing facilities help us provide innovative treatments designed to conquer this killer.
