National Cancer Institute (NCI)-designated cancer centers like the Mayo Clinic Cancer Center foster cancer research in part through formal research programs. The Mayo Clinic Cancer Center has 10 distinct research programs that focus on cancer.
NCI-funded research programs bring together groups of investigators who share common scientific interests and goals and participate in competitively funded research. These research programs lead to the exchange of information, experimental techniques and ideas that enhance the individual productivity of scientists and often result in collaborations and joint publications across the three Mayo Clinic campuses and with other institutions.
