The mission of the Terry Fox Laboratory is
to fuel major improvements in
cancer outcomes through basic and translational research with a
current focus on cancer stem
Growing evidence indicates that cancer stem
cells are often rare, difficult to study and likely
heterogeneous in their properties and composition, even within a
single tumour. These issues pose significant challenges to the
field of cancer research and highlight the importance of an
interdisciplinary approach to effectively tackle many basic
unknowns that underpin the cancer stem cell problem and to test
new leads in a translational pipeline.
