The Campbell Family Institute for Breast Cancer Research was launched in June 2004 thanks to an extraordinarily generous gift of $25 million from the late Audrey Campbell and her three daughters. In addition, Susan Grange donated $5 million to support the innovative work of Dr. David Jaffray in the area of image-guided radiation.
The Campbell Family Cancer Research Institute, supported by the significant and long-term commitment of the Campbell Family and The Walk, is an international powerhouse at The Princess Margaret Cancer Centre. The Campbell Family Cancer Research Institute leads the world in many of the most promising areas of cancer research such as tumour metabolism, cancer stem cells, cancer genomics, proteomics, informatics and molecular imaging/guided therapeutics. The Campbell Family Institute builds on the breast cancer research work of internationally recognized Dr. Tak Mak and his team, to benefit all cancers.
The sustainable development of The Campbell Family Institute will depend on the close integration of people and resources, enabling maximum global impact in the fight against cancer.
The Campbell Family Cancer Research Institute capitalizes on the work of existing stars such as Dr. Tak Mak (t-cell receptor discovery and more recent new cancer target discovery), Dr. John Dick (cancer stem cells) and Dr. Pam Oashi (immune therapy) and a long list of distinguished researchers, to accelerate the pace of cancer research, facilitating the translation of scientific advances into new life-saving therapies that will help us in our collective efforts to CONQUER CANCER IN OUR LIFETIME.
The vision of The Campbell Family Cancer Research Institute is to continue to be recognized as one of the top 5 cancer research centres in the world as measured by its number of new discoveries, the quality of its research, its reputation and its overall impact on conquering cancer.
