The basic goal of our laboratory research is to understand the cellular and molecular determinants of radiosensitivity in tumours and normal tissues with a long-term objective of bringing these innovations into the clinical setting. Through our affiliation with the University of Toronto's Department of Radiation Oncology, where many of our staff are faculty members, we collaborate with other local, national and international cancer centres, such as the Odette Cancer Centre and the Ontario Institute for Cancer Research.

As one of the largest cancer centres in Canada, we use a range of cutting edge clinical technologies in radiation medicine to develop personalized care for our patients, such as volumetric modulated arc therapy, MR-guided radiation therapy and MR interventional simulation. Our internationally recognized team of researchers also strive to integrate our extensive clinical experience in treating some of the rarest and most complex cases of cancer with innovative, adaptive radiation research to ensure the right treatment at the right time for every patient.

Our researchers also have access to one of the leading cancer research facilities in the world through the Princess Margaret's research arm​, which is equipped with state-of-the-art tools in biobanking, genomics, proteomics, bioinformatics and other innovations that are moving findings “from the bench to the bedside and back to the bench”.
