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.
Research is critical to improving patient care because it identifies new and innovative treatments as well as bringing the advantageous impacts of clinical trials conducted here in Manitoba. Research improves patient care and outcomes.
The Research Institute is the only provincial organization dedicated exclusively to improving cancer control in Manitoba through research and innovation. Coordination of cancer research across the province is a priority so that all Manitobans will have the opportunity to participate in, and benefit from, research discoveries. 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. Data collected from CancerCare Manitoba's participation in national and international research has influenced the standard treatments used today. Through clinical trials, patients are provided with the opportunity to access state-of-the-art treatments while helping future cancer patients.
