The Arnie Charbonneau Cancer Institute at the University of Calgary is ‘meeting the cancer challenge’ in three critical areas of discovery and innovation:

• Through our focus on understanding the biology of cancer leading to new diagnostics and treatments and to clinical trials that will redefine standards of care.

• Through our focus on new technologies to detect early cancers and prevent cancer altogether by lifestyle modification, silencing cancer-causing inherited susceptibilities, and swaying public health policy in ways that greatly reduce cancer risk.

• And through our focus on the psychosocial and physical effects of cancer and the challenges that accompany life after cancer for the increasing number of long term survivors.
