BC Cancer Agency: The Place for Cutting-Edge Research

Hello everyone, Right now is a very exciting time for cancer research in British Columbia for several reasons, one of them being the huge advances that have been made in the technology we use at the BC Cancer Agency. The BC Cancer Agency is a world leader in genomics research, which is the study of the genetic changes that lead to cancer development and growth. In the past decade there’s been an astronomical improvement in the technology used for this research, and thus information that would have taken years or even longer to get in the past can now be obtained in only hours. This...

Current Pancreatic Cancer Research at the BC Cancer Agency

Hello everyone, In this week’s post I’d like to tell you about some of the areas of research we’re working on to improve our ability to diagnose and treat pancreatic cancer.

Another issue is that it tends to be very resistant to most types of chemotherapy. One of the main areas of research in pancreatic cancer involves trying to better understand...

Clinical Trials for Pancreatic Cancer at the BC Cancer Agency

Hello everyone, We’ve had a very exciting week since the last post! The Inspiration Gala was an incredible event, with over $3.5 million raised for cancer research. My colleagues and I are truly inspired by and thankful for the generosity that led to this amazing achievement. We’re also very excited about the upcoming research initiatives in pancreatic cancer. I work as a clinician investigator and spend about half my time involved in patient care and teaching and the rest on research. My main area of research is in clinical trials, with a focus on developing new anti-cancer drugs, and trying...

I then came to Vancouver for my residency training in internal medicine and medical oncology. I became quite interested in the areas of pancreatic cancer and development of new...
