The BC Cancer Agency
CARE + RESEARCH
The mandate of the BC Cancer Agency is based on a balanced commitment to research and care to enable continual improvements in efficiency and effectiveness, to enhance training programs for professionals dedicated to achieving these goals, and to provide an up-to-date centre of knowledge of cancer control strategies and policies.
The research portfolio of the BC Cancer Agency underpins all major aspects of its service commitments and is organized as departments and programs with various thematic elements identifying foci of team efforts and internationally established leadership. These comprise activities that explore basic mechanisms and technology development relevant to all areas of cancer control research, clinical studies and clinical trials, and population health and service research. The Research portfolio also supports internationally recognized facilities and platforms in genomics, bioinformatics, molecular pathology, imaging, drug development and tissue banking.
