Princess Margaret Cancer Centre
– One of the Top Five Cancer Research Centres in the World
The Princess Margaret Cancer Centre is the only research and comprehensive treatment centre devoted exclusively to cancer in Canada. With over 1,200 researchers and scientists on staff they are one of the top five cancer research centres in the world based on research performance, scale, breadth and a history of discovery and innovation.
Nearly one in two Canadians will be diagnosed with cancer. Each year the centre treats over 18,000 patients – caring for many of Canada’s most complex cases and treating over 200 types of cancer. The Princess Margaret Cancer Centre has the largest clinical trials program in Canada with one in five patients participating. Clinical trials are one of the most important ways new, life-saving treatments can become available to patients with cancer.
The goal at the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre is To Conquer Cancer in Our Lifetime!
