What We Do
We have top researchers working in communities across Ontario in fields such as genomics, informatics, diagnostic development, drug discovery, immuno-oncology and imaging.
We support collaborative research networks, provide mentoring AND training for the next generation of cancer researchers, and share tools and resources with partners to enable cancer research impact in Ontario and beyond.
Our research contributes to better health outcomes and improved quality of life for cancer patients around the world while creating jobs and economic benefits across Ontario.
We work with our commercialization partner FACIT to drive oncology innovations from the lab to the clinic where they can benefit patients and generate economic returns for Ontario.
