Toronto (May 27, 2014) – Two world-renowned cancer centres today announced they will work together to further a shared vision of advancing innovation and delivery of best practices in all aspects of cancer care, research and education.
The two institutions – Canada's Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, University Health Network, Toronto and India's Tata Memorial Centre, Mumbai – signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) here establishing the broad principles and framework to pool their internationally acclaimed cancer knowledge and expertise.
Signing on behalf of the Princess Margaret, Medical Director Dr. Mary Gospodarowicz said: "Cancer knows no borders and as pioneers in cancer care in our respective countries, we are a great match to collaborate on many fronts.
"Our shared vision is to create opportunities for joint ventures that will ultimately benefit cancer patients worldwide."
Signing on behalf of Tata Memorial Centre, Director Dr. Rajendra Badwe said: "The meeting point of our two cultures, India and Canada, will be a melting pot for novelty in oncology."
Under terms of the MOU, the cancer centres will exchange information about patient care and clinical research, education and training. They will also encourage academic collaborations, promote faculty exchanges and facilitate visits among students and trainees.
Other areas of mutual interest include advancing delivery of personalized cancer medicine and e-health initiatives.
Tata Memorial Centre is the national comprehensive cancer centre for the prevention, treatment, education and research in Cancer and is recognized as one of the leading cancer centres in this part of the world. This achievement has been possible due to the far-sighted and total support of the Department of Atomic Energy, responsible for managing this Institution since 1962.
