Society announces Top 10 Research Impact Stories of 2015

04 January 2016

Toronto -

Today, the Canadian Cancer Society announced its Top 10 Research Impact Stories of 2015. These world-class research discoveries exemplify the very best of what science can achieve through dedicated investment. Thanks to our donors for making this possible.

The Canadian Cancer Society funds excellence through its highly competitive, gold standard expert-review selection process. In 2015, the Society will invest over $42 million to fund the country’s most promising cancer research. The aim of this research is to accelerate cancer prevention, detection, diagnosis and treatment, and to enhance the quality of life for those living with and beyond cancer.

The findings of these studies were published in prestigious, international medical and scientific journals. They demonstrate the breadth of Society-funded research across the cancer spectrum and its reach all across Canada.

Congratulations to this year’s top 10!
