Education at OICR

Researchers and clinican-scientists at the Ontario Institute for Cancer Research (OICR) are making a significant contribution to the prevention, early detection, diagnosis and treatment of cancer.

OICR has a number of programs that facilitate knowledge exchange to ensure that the research it conducts has a great impact on the understanding of cancer, on future cancer research and on the provision of oncology services to patients.

We are committed to cancer research education and outreach to:

  • Generate public awareness about cancer research in Ontario;
  • Engage youth in cancer research activities;
  • Support and develop young basic and clinical scientists in their cancer research careers to help build the next generation of cancer researchers.

Are you a student or teacher?

OICR offers a wide range of opportunities from class field trips to internships and virtual visits with our scientists, to enrich the school curriculum.


Looking for career training?

The goal of OICR's cancer career training and support program is to provide continued support and learning opportunities to the next generation of cancer researchers to further their own research and their careers.
