More than 500 cancer researchers, oncologists, care providers, philanthropists, data and technology experts, advocates, patients, families, and cancer survivors participated in the Minnesota Cancer Moonshot Summit at the University of Minnesota on June 29, 2016. Together, they generated ideas and commitments that will accelerate advances in cancer research, prevention, treatment, and survivorship—all part of a national effort to double the rate of progress toward a cure.
