Research and discovery are vital for continued improvements to cancer care services. In addition to large international studies, differen​​ces in culture and environment require local data to ensure that evidence-based clinical decisions are tailored to the population of interest.

Our research program seeks to impact patient care through two streams of work:

  1. To build global research capacity through training research professionals and providing mentorship.
  2. To conduct and define research priorities on global cancer issues with the aim of driving global cancer research and innovation to advance cancer priorities internationally.

The Global Cancer Program places strong emphasis on research that is multidisciplinary and that strengt​hens existing collaborations between Princess Margaret Cancer Centre and partnering institutions.
