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

Cancer Clinical Trials

We conduct cancer clinical trials to provide cutting edge technologies and treatments and advance research outcomes for patients. Our physician scientists and other providers treat over 4,000 new cancer cases each year and enroll patients on over 200 currently active cancer clinical trials.

Community Outreach and Engagement

Our goal is to reduce cancer incidence and mortality, particularly among underserved communities. The members of the MCW Cancer Center do this by measuring and understanding our area’s cancer burdens, disparities and contributing factors and use this information to promote clinical, research and policy initiatives.
