Our research at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre allows us to find out more about cancer and develop better treatments for it. New discoveries and innovative cancer therapies that are changing cancer care for patients around the world are happening right here through our clinical trials and other research.
Clinical trials test new treatments to see if they work and are safe. Taking part in a clinical trial has possible risks and benefits. Talk to your doctor and the study research team to learn important information to help you decide if you want to
participate in a clinical trial.
Research Ethics Board
Research Ethics Board (REB) at the University Health Network is responsible for making sure that all research is conducted ethically.
Before researchers can begin a new study, they must explain to the REB what they want to do and how they will do it. The REB determines if the new study is ethically and scientifically sound.
The researchers in charge of the study must make sure that their research complies with the
Tri-Council Policy Statement: Ethical Conduct for Research Involving Human Subjects and any other regulations or guidelines that apply.
