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 Research Institute 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.
The Clinical Trials Unit facilitates and coordinates clinical research in the areas of prevention, treatment, palliation, and quality of life. Through clinical trials, patients are provided with the opportunity to access state-of-the-art treatments while helping future cancer patients.
All research studies involving CancerCare Manitoba (CCMB) and/or CancerCare Manitoba Research Institute (CCMR), in whole or in part, must undergo review and approval by CCMB’s Research Review Impact Committee (RRIC) prior to initiating any study activity.
