The Missouri Cancer Registry and Research Center (MCR) home of the Missouri Cancer Registry — Missouri's state-mandated central cancer registry — is located on the campus of the University of Missouri and housed within the Department of Public Health in the School of Health Sciences. MCR is a collaborative partnership between the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS) and the University of Missouri. Since 1995, MCR has received financial support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC's) National Program of Cancer Registries (NPCR).

MCR collects cases from inpatient and outpatient hospital settings, physician offices, pathology laboratories, ambulatory surgical centers, residential care facilities and assisted living facilities, intermediate care facilities, skilled nursing facilities, and free-standing cancer clinics and treatment centers — required by Missouri statutes (192.650, 192.653, 192.655, 192.657 RSMo) and and regulations (19 CSR 70-21.010) to submit cancer information to the state central cancer registry.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) provides financial support under Cooperative Agreement #58/DP007130-01.
