Support Cancer Research
With the right resources, we can improve cancer prevention, screening, treatment, and survivorship. Let our state lawmakers know Minnesotans value the University of Minnesota’s efforts to improve statewide access to potentially life-saving prevention and care and ask them to support the Minnesota Cancer Clinical Trials Network.
Our specialists are dedicated to advancing the uniquely vital components of the threefold academic mission of teaching, research, and service. Areas of expertise include laboratory administration, grant coordination, study design, scholarly manuscript editing, and more.
