Access to Data

Research studies which include Missouri residents can benefit from linkage with the Missouri Cancer Registry and Research Center (MCR) database, a population-based database of all reportable tumors diagnosed among Missouri residents. If you are a researcher interested in conducting an epidemiologic study using MCR data for the purpose of determining the incidence and etiology of malignant neoplasms and/or evaluating measures designed to eliminate, alleviate, or reduce the impact of cancer, please contact us for more information and prior to submitting an Institutional Review Board (IRB) request.
