Dr. Raymond Kim leads OICR’s Ontario Hereditary Cancer Research Network (OHCRN). OHCRN aims to identify all Ontario hereditary cancer carriers and discover new mechanisms of cancer development. This includes the biology, prevention, early detection and precision cancer treatment of germline carriers which can also be applied to all cancer patients.

Dr. Raymond Kim is a Medical Geneticist with a large clinical practice comprising of hereditary cancer syndromes and chairs the CCMG Canada-wide Cancer Genetics and Genomics (C2G2) community of practice. Dr. Kim’s research interests involve the integration of novel genomic technologies in clinical care including whole genome sequencing and cell free DNA.
