Hematology & Oncology - Research/Clinical Trials
Advances in medicine and science are the results of new ideas and approaches developed through research. New cancer treatments must prove to be safe and effective in scientific studies with a certain number of patients before they can be made widely available.

The Masonic Cancer Center, University of Minnesota, serves as the center for cancer research for University of Minnesota Children’s Hospital. It is a National Cancer Institute designated comprehensive cancer center, with 500 members applying their expertise to the broad problem of cancer. It conducts research into the causes of cancer, its prevention, treatment, outcomes, and survivorship. Learn more about the research.

Through clinical trials, researchers learn which approaches are more effective than others. This is the best way to test a new treatment. Today's standard treatments were first shown to be effective in clinical trials. Additional trials will help find new and better treatments.
