Our Mission: To reduce the cancer burden through outreach, education and research into the causes, prevention, early detection and treatment of cancer.
Cancer touches everyone in our community, and for many, the impact is devastating. Research cures cancer, and cancer research is the top strategic priority of the Medical College of Wisconsin.
The mission of the MCW Cancer Center is to reduce the cancer burden through outreach, education and research into the causes, prevention, early detection and treatment of cancer. We do this by integrating basic science, translational and clinical research, patient care and professional and community education, with an emphasis on engaging underserved populations.
Our network of cancer experts, scientists, clinicians, research programs and shared resources connects the collective cancer effort at the Medical College of Wisconsin and throughout the region. This essential hub provides leadership, knowledge, support and resources to hundreds of cancer investigators and clinicians.
We provide a complete, centralized, single-minded focus on cancer research, from the bench to the bedside to the community. As the only center of its type in our region, we provide patients with multidisciplinary, state-of-the-art treatment, research-driven care and early phase clinical trials, right here in eastern Wisconsin.
The MCW Cancer Center Clinical Trials Office (CTO) supports clinical cancer research with partners throughout our community:
- Froedtert Hospital, Milwaukee
- Froedtert Menomonee Falls Hospital, Menomonee Falls
- Froedtert West Bend Hospital, West Bend
