A Lung Cancer

The GCRC is committed to the creation of a Lung Cancer Network, a paradigm-shifting initiative that will bring together local clinical and research institutions in a collaborative model to tackle the challenges of lung cancer and metastatic disease.

The Goodman Cancer Research Centre is proud to play a pivotal role in this network by delivering research outcomes supported by advanced technological platforms and highly trained research professionals.

Through collaboration, we will leverage knowledge, expertise, resources and strategies, and multiply successes.

A Lung Cancer Network will

  • facilitate collaboration among basic and clinician scientists, clinicians and patients leading to new approaches to understand lung cancer in the non-smoking population
  • improve prevention, diagnosis and treatments for lung cancer
  • become one of the premier lung oncology networks with local, national and international partnerships

The network’s core activities include state-of-the-art diagnosis and treatment, specialized diagnostic tests, cutting-edge translational research in lung cancer treatment and expanding the cancer biorepository, as well as crucial clinical trial networks and metrics centered on improving outcomes.
