Shared Resources: Core Facilities and Services for Research

Throughout Mayo Clinic and its three campuses in Arizona, Florida and Minnesota, scientific facilities and offices house 13 shared resources that support basic, clinical and population sciences cancer research.

Shared resources are crucial to the mission of the Mayo Clinic Cancer Center and its cancer research initiatives.

Shared resources provide numerous valuable services and resources, including access to cutting-edge technology and methodology, scientific consultation, reliability, cost-effectiveness and quality control.

Through the National Cancer Institute (NCI) Cancer Centers Program, NCI-designated cancer centers, like the Mayo Clinic Cancer Center, are characterized by scientific excellence and the ability to integrate diverse research approaches to focus on cancer. NCI grants help fund cancer research initiatives at designated cancer centers, including assistance for shared resources at Mayo Clinic.
