About the Princess Margaret
The Princess Margaret and its research arm, the Ontario
Cancer Institute, which includes The Campbell Family Cancer Research Institute, have achieved an international reputation
as one of the top 5 cancer research centres in the world.
The Princess Margaret is the largest institution of its kind in Canada devoted 100% to conquering cancer. Fundraising events like Scotiabank Road Hockey to Conquer Cancer support breakthrough research and discovery of new more effective cancer fighting therapies.
The extraordinary personnel at The Princess Margaret,
including leading scientists and researchers, are committed to CONQUERING CANCER IN OUR LIFETIME. Your funds will support The Princess Margaret's vision of personalized cancer medicine - a multi-faceted, integrated approach to cancer care that focuses on the unique nature of each patient: "Finding the right treatment for the right patient, at the right time."
Funding will go towards programs like our high content clinical trials, our world class tumour bank, our advanced molecular profiling laboratory and our new drug development program. The Princess Margaret will also be able to allocate funds for other programs like cancer stem cells, cancer metabolism and microenvironment, immunotherapy, and major site programs such as lung cancer, prostate cancer and women’s cancers programs, to name a few. When you register as a participant you can select the cancer site area that is most important to you or you can designate your funds to The Princess Margaret high priority cancer discovery fund. The medical and research heads of the cancer program make the final determination of the use of funds within the disease area you selected and the priorities of the research institute and hospital.
The Princess Margaret is a member of University Health Network, which also includes Toronto General Hospital and Toronto Western Hospital. All three are research hospitals affiliated with the University of Toronto.
