  • Providing pediatric cancer patients with access to more clinical trials and new treatments than anywhere else in Minnesota. Many of the treatments available to children with cancer were pioneered here at our National Center Institute-designated research facility, Masonic Cancer Center, University of Minnesota. Our discoveries often become the standard of care for patients around the world. 
  • Developing new therapies including cell, gene, and immune-based therapies, that improve cure rates and make treatments highly effective and safer for patients. We’re home to a ground-breaking development of a potential treatment for pediatric brain tumors, the number one cause of cancer deaths in children. 
  • Elevating patient experience and care through innovative spaces and enhanced programs including integrative and nature-based therapies while providing the best possible care to patients facing cancer right now. 
  • Improving childhood cancer survivorship, helping more patients not only survive but thrive. M Health Fairview Masonic Children’s Hospital is the birthplace of childhood cancer survivorship and continues to build on this pioneering legacy through the integration of clinical care and research to improve outcomes for cancer survivors. 
  • Leveraging big data to expand our understanding of cancer causes and outcomes.  Putting that knowledge to work in our research for cancers like Ewing sarcoma to more accurately target the disease with pharmaceutical or immunotherapy interventions.
