At BC Cancer Agency Research Centre, leading cancer researchers work with clinicians, scientists, research technicians, post-graduate students, and dedicated support staff to discover what causes cancer, ways to improve treatment and how to develop more effective means of controlling and curing the disease. Direct links between the Agency's Research Centre in Vancouver and the Agency's cancer centres across the province allow new discoveries, identified locally and around the world, to be quickly translated into clinical applications here in B.C., ensuring that cancer care and treatment is based on the most recent, evidence-based research and the latest technologies.
