A major collaborative investment in cancer survivorship research in Canada
Message from Scientific Director, Dr. Stephen Robbins


I hope and trust that everyone is well during these extraordinary times

I am very pleased to announce the results of the Canadian Cancer Society/CIHR Survivorship Team Grant competition, in partnership with the Alberta Cancer Foundation.

To our knowledge, this funding opportunity represents the largest single investment to support cancer survivorship research in Canada, totaling over $13.4 million.

This investment is made possible through our ongoing collaboration with the Canadian Cancer Society and with support from the Alberta Cancer Foundation.

With the advancement in clinical care and better early detection, we have more cancer survivors than ever before. It is my hope that the findings from these research teams will improve the quality of life of cancer survivors, who often go on to experience many complications from their specific cancer and its treatment.

I would like to thank the research community for their great interest in this funding opportunity, and I would like to personally congratulate the successful grant recipients.

Thank you for your past and future contributions,

Dr. Stephen Robbins
Scientific Director, Institute of Cancer Research
