Instrumental Support: Donors Making a Difference for Lymphoid Cancer Research

The BC Cancer Foundation provides instrumental support to the Gascoyne Laboratory and a number of other researchers within the Centre for Lymphoid Cancer (CLC) program.

These funds are critical to our sustainability over time - particularly between large-scale projects. These funds backfill any shortfalls in peer-reviewed grant funding that occur. They also provide the seed funding to allow us to generate preliminary data...

I was born on Vancouver Island in a very small...
