The Clinical Investigations Department at BC Cancer was established to be the central point of contact for investigators wanting to undertake clinical research at BC Cancer. 

We are putting together a team of dedicated and recognized experts to help guide investigators and study teams to achieve the highest quality research.  The goals of the department are to improve the quality and productivity of clinical research at BC Cancer while encouraging a culture of innovation, responsibility and accountability.  The Clinical Investigations Department is committed to ensuring BC Cancer clinical research is operationally efficient and of high quality.  We will achieve this by standardizing practices across the province, providing comprehensive education programs and quality and metrics reporting and administrative support for clinician-investigators.

From Research to Treatment

Many of the treatments we have in Canada today are available thanks to people who volunteer to take part in a clinical trial​.
