Terry Fox Research Institute (the research arm of The Terry Fox Foundation)
– These programs bring together leading researchers with complementary skills, to investigate different aspects of a given area of cancer research. By bringing individual research projects together under one Program Project Grant, results can be realized more rapidly and more efficiently.
– A major focus of the Terry Fox Research Institute is translational research. Translation is often defined as research which moves discoveries made in the clinic to the laboratory and on to the bedside. This area of research holds great promise today for providing improved care and outcomes for cancer patients everywhere. •
– New Investigators
The New Investigators program provides research operating grant support to future leaders as they develop their independent careers in cancer research.
The success of any nation is often reflected in the achievements of its future generation. Promising new cancer researchers and scientists in Canada are critical to ensure continued leadership and advancement in cancer research and for our health care system to be better able to meet population needs. Funding future cancer researchers and scientists is important to the Terry Fox Research Institute.
