Congratulations to Dr. Shoukat Dedhar (Dedhar Lab), for being awarded $125,000 from the Cancer Research Society Charlotte Légaré Memorial Fund for his project, “Targeting Hypoxia-Driven Metabolic Effectors of Immunosuppression in Pancreatic Cancer.”
BC Cancer researchers creating metabolic maps to uncover clues about how cancers disable our immune system
Canadian research teams, including several from BC Cancer, will receive a total of $2.4 million to advance cancer research and treatment following new awards in the 2023 Terry Fox New Frontiers Program Project Grant (PPG) competition.
Dr. Joseph Lau is working to develop the next generation of radiopharmaceuticals for both diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. Radiopharmaceuticals are radioactive compounds used in cancer care. From a diagnostic perspective, his work focusses on making these radioactive agents better able to detect and visualize cancers in the body. From a treatment perspective this helps oncologists determine if a cancer is operable, delineates margins for radiation planning or select targeted-therapies based on molecular properties of cancer.
BC Cancer Foundation is the fundraising partner of BC Cancer, which includes BC Cancer Research. Together with our donors, we are changing cancer outcomes for British Columbians by funding innovative research and personalized treatment and care.
