Scope of Research

To achieve global impact, a scientific research institute requires world-class people, platforms, and programs. The Campbell Family Cancer Research Institute is fortunate that many top scientists have left their homes to come to Toronto because they believe that this is where they can have the most impact. Their expertise is recognized through their publication record in high-impact, peer-reviewed scientific journals, and the many prestigious awards received from national and international organizations.

The Campbell Family Institute is building world-class research programs utilizing our expertise in the scientific platforms most vital for cancer research: mass spectrometry, flow cytometry, new drug discovery, biobanking, and computational biology. Our areas of focus include:

  • Cancer/Normal stem cells
  • Personalized genomics/epigenomics
  • Immunotherapy
  • Imaging/image-guided therapy
  • Signal transduction
  • DNA damage/repair
  • Tumour metabolism/microenvironment
  • Psychosocial oncology
