MCW Cancer Center

Cancer is the leading cause of death for the people of eastern Wisconsin. The MCW Cancer Center (MCWCC) is the only academic cancer research center in our area - a distinct region that includes large underserved populations, patients who experience significant disparities in cancer incidence and outcomes and unique cancer problems.

We take on cancer’s toughest challenges by mobilizing nationally recognized scientists and physicians, the latest research-driven treatments and over 200 cancer clinical trials and community driven interventions. Our researchers and clinicians draw upon a depth of scientific proficiency, interdisciplinary diversity and clinical expertise.

Through these efforts, we are committed to reduce the cancer burden for all patients and in every community; in Milwaukee, eastern Wisconsin, the state, and beyond. Learn more
