Cancer Clinical Trials Network Logo


People throughout Minnesota now have better access to leading-edge cancer clinical research trials, thanks to a partnership between the University of Minnesota and the state’s major health systems.

The Minnesota Cancer Clinical Trials Network (MNCCTN), with eight of 18 locations across the state now up and running, aims to improve cancer prevention, treatment, and survivorship for all Minnesotans. Trials originate from the Masonic Cancer Center, University of Minnesota, and Mayo Clinic Cancer Center — Minnesota’s Comprehensive Cancer Centers as designated by the National Cancer Institute — as well as from the Hormel Institute in Austin, Minnesota.

The MNCCTN is funded by the state via Minnesota’s Discovery, Research, and InnoVation Economy (MnDRIVE) initiative, with additional clinical trials support from Minnesota Masonic Charities.
