14 December 2016

Toronto -

Today, the Canadian Cancer Society announced its Top 10 Research Impact Stories of 2016. These world-class research discoveries show us what we can achieve through research when our donors help us make dedicated investments.

The Canadian Cancer Society funds excellence through its highly competitive, gold standard expert-review selection process. Last year, the Society invested $44 million to fund the country’s most promising cancer research in cancer prevention, detection, diagnosis, treatment and quality of life for those living with and beyond cancer.

The following stories demonstrate the breadth of Society-funded research across the cancer spectrum and its reach all across Canada.

Congratulations to this year’s top 10!
