By studying how to detect cancer at an early stage, how to alleviate the symptoms of both cancer and cancer treatment, and how to improve longevity and quality of life for cancer survivors, researchers in this Cancer Center program are advancing methods to control cancer development and reduce side effects of cancer treatment.
The Cancer Prevention and Control Program at Mayo Clinic is discovering new ways to prevent cancer, slow cancer development, and alleviate cancer symptoms and treatment side effects.
Research focus areas include reducing cancer risk through chemoprevention, tobacco control, and early detection; effective control of cancer symptoms and treatment side effects; and improving quality of life for cancer survivors.
Contact the program about research on chemopreventive agents, novel risk factors, tobacco cessation strategies, e-cigarette use, and cancer screening and surveillance biomarkers, or for collaboration with the Cancer Prevention and Control Program.
The Cancer Prevention and Control Program is part of the Mayo Clinic Cancer Center, an NCI-designated comprehensive cancer center with locations in Arizona, Florida and Minnesota.
