The groundbreaking work done by Dr. Doug Yee and researchers at the U's Masonic Cancer Center isn't waste or a handout. Neither is the cutting-edge research done in Rochester by Dr. Robert Diasio and his colleagues at the Mayo Clinic Cancer Center. The same holds true for the important work done elsewhere in Minnesota. A $2 million annual National Cancer Institute grant supports about 50 staffers at a consortium of metro hospitals and clinics.
