The Princess Margaret Hospital's research program is ranked fourth in the world. That is in terms of the percentage of publications cited in high impact oncology journals. It is the research center where important discoveries such as Dr. James Till and Dr. Ernest McCulloch’s discovery of stem cells in 1961 were made. Currently, they are pushing forward to improve the effectiveness of personalized medicine in the fight against cancer. Also, one of their researchers, Dr. Tak Mak, has recently received Health Canada and FDA approval to go ahead to phase 1 clinical trials for a new cancer drug that will target PLK4, an important enzyme in cancer cell division. We are happy to support research such as this happening at Princess Margaret to help end a disease that 2 out of 5 Canadians will be diagnosed with in their lifetime.
