Embedding research into all aspects of cancer control is an essential component of CancerCare Manitoba’s mission to reduce the impact of cancer on our population through prevention, early detection and a personalized approach to cancer treatment.

The Paul Albrechtsen Research Institute CancerCare Manitoba is the only provincial organization dedicated exclusively to improving cancer control in Manitoba through research and innovation. This is made possible due to the CancerCare Manitoba Foundation which, through the support of Manitobans, is able to generously fund research carried out at CancerCare Manitoba.
